This quick craft project shows you how to make a festive Christmas table centerpiece.

by Craftbits (Shellie Wilson)

What you need

Wrapped candy canes
Pillar Candle or Plastic Vase
Red Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun


Glue one candy cane to the side of the pillar candle leaving it in its wrapper.

The hook part of the cane should be facing down and out so that the arch of the hook is resting on the table at the base of the candle.

Glue the second cane directly opposite the first candy cane.

Continue gluing the canes around the candle till the candle is filled.

Place a little glue down the side of each cane so that it is stuck to the cane next to it. This will help the project all hold together.

Make sure that the candle is sitting flat on the table. If it isn’t you may need to try another cane or raise or lower the cane till it sits flat.

Once you have completed gluing the candy canes on, tie a ribbon or raffia around bottom of candy canes and it is finished.

You can also turn the canes the other way with the hooks at the top. This project looks great on small candles or candles that are taller than the canes.

Never leave burning candles unattended.
