Candy Cane Holder Candle Centerpiece

I know it's kind of early, or late for that matter, for Christmas but I am a new member and I thought I would share. This is a Candy Cane Candle holder that I made for gifts last year.

I took a little glass decorative coaster (bought for a buck at the dollar store). I used a tin can from mushrooms or soup, spray painted it red and glued it onto the coaster. Next I glued the candy canes on. (this was the most expensive part of this project so try to get them when they are on sale) The candy canes get glued around the outside so the "hooks" of the canes fan out.

I glued the ribbon around the candy canes to kind of pull it all together, and glued it to form the bow (this ribbon was also purchased at the dollar store for a buck and I was able to make 4 candle holders plus I have more extra). And last, but not least, put the candle on top (candle was a dollar as well).

This is relatively inexpensive and it makes for a great (and cute!) centerpiece for the holidays!
