So pretty. I love how this centerpiece adds so much color to a table. It looks like it came from a florist, but it’s very simple to make. I’d have more of the pine needles/greenery showing for more of a red and green look. You could use fewer roses that way too.
You can even make individual place card holders like this if you like. Just use baby food jars and the small candy canes. Then add a single rosebud with greenery and lean a place card up against it.
Since the original link for this tutorial no longer exists, I’ll try to give directions.
Pick a jar that fits the size of the candy canes. You can use a baby food jar with small candy canes. For larger candy canes you can use any jar you already have, even empty spaghetti sauce jars. If you want several arrangements to look the same you’ll need jars the same size for that. If you prefer Mason jars check your local thrift shop for them. You are much cheaper there than brand new in stores.
Use masking tape to hold the candy canes onto the jar. Place the tape where you want the ribbon. Then cover it with a ribbon wide enough to cover the masking tape. Tie the ends of the ribbon in a bow for a finished look.
Add water to the jars when you add the roses (or other flowers). Add greenery as you like.
