Candy Cane Candle Holder / Placecard Holder SIMPLE

47310_301268786658094_1510707828_nWhat a wonderful creation that would make great candle holders. Even making enough for a little take home keepsake for each of your guests would not be costly and be very unique. You will need eight wrapped candy canes. Start with two and continue hot gluing each as you go along. You will not need a lot of glue and low setting is just fine. When you get about half way through you will need to keep the candle in place as well so it will all look just right when you finish off with the eighth candy cane. Finish with a ribbon and bow. You could also make smaller versions of these with just four candy canes and use them as name tag holders. Make sure the ‘hook’ of the candy canes stay on a flat surface to make sure your end product can stand on its own. This will be such a great addition to your Christmas party and everyone will really enjoy them.

 

Cany Cane Flower Floral Pot

What a great way to spruce up  a poinsettia or other flower pot inside your home. It is only temporary so it can even be made around a favorite pot in your home right now.

Tie a ribbon and then bow around the middle the of the candy canes. For a slightly more permanent design, hot glue the ribbon as you wrap it around the middle of the candy canes over the rubber band. Would make a great gift or decoration for a party, especially this time of year!
