How To Create A Cute Christmas Candle Holder

AHHHHH!  It is time for Christmas!!!  My favorite time of the year!  Bring on the Christmas music, Christmas cheer and, most of all, celebrating our Saviour's birth.  This truly is the most wonderful time of the year!


Here you go...an easy candle holder for your table.  I demonstrated this at my neighborhood Garden Club two weeks ago and, they really seemed to like it.  


SUPPLIES:
Glass container
1 yard of ribbon
1 package PEEPS Christmas candy
1 package MIKE & IKE'S candy
1 candle in a votive holder


Step 1:  Place the PEEPS side-to-side in the clear glass container.  Note:  Use scissors to cut the PEEPS apart, this way, they will not tear up. 




STEP 2:   Tie a bow around the glass container. 




Step 3:   Pour half the box of the MIKE & IKE'S candy in the container, in between the PEEPS.  Place the votive on top of the candy.  Add the remaining candy around the votive.











This candle holder is super cute on the table, especially with children attending.  They love to look at the candy!  


Merry Merry With Flair,
Beth
