Items Needed:
  • 2 Vases - any sizes can be used as long as one vase is small enough to fit into the other with enough room for the candy to be placed.
  • Any type of Christmas Candy - wrapped or unwrapped
  • Any assortment of fresh Flowers


Step 1: Fill the smaller vase with fresh water and flower food.  Place the smaller vase centered inside the larger vase.

Step 2: Place the candy in the space between the two vases a few pieces at a time. Take care to place the candy so that the flat surface is facing the outside of the vase so the candy looks nicely placed.  Again, any candy can be used so you can be as creative as you like with this step.

Step 3: Carefully place flowers in the smaller vase. Add fresh water to the vase as needed.  To change the water if necessary, carefully remove the inner vase and remove the candy then repeat step 2. You can use any candy, any time of year!  Enjoy and fun!!
