Candy Cane Vase

Candycanevase

I love Christmas.  The warm fuzzy feeling you can have the whole month.  The decorations, the lights, the treats, the Holiday Spirit.  Christmas has always been the main holiday that I decorate for.  Now that we have a house, I am on a mission to make a few new holiday decor items each year, and for each holiday.  This year I made this simple candy cane vase that I had seen a few versions of.  All I needed to purchase were the candy canes, and for less than $3, I had myself this cute vase…now I just need to fill it with pretty flowers!!

Tie with a ribbon. (I decided to go with a wider ribbon to cover up both rubber bands)

Add your flowers, and enjoy!!
