How to quickly make this Christmas Candle Holder

Making a Christmas Candle Holder  is an easy quick little craft that make the sweetest Candy Cane Decorations. 

These Candy Cane Candle Holders are one of those fun little Christmas crafts that is inexpensive and very easy to make.     

We made two but I would like to have a grouping of five or more for my table set among holly or pine broughs.  Wouldn't that be gorgous? And they are made for just pennies on the dollar?  

So if you are looking for an unusual candle holder for a centerpiece or a set of candle holders for a side table, grab your glue gun and some candy canes and get to glueing. 


Christmas Candle Holder - Candy Cane Decorations

Supplies Needed:

12" Taper Candles
8 Candy Canes for each candle
Greenery (optional) 
Glue Gun

1.  Glue one candy cane to the side of a candle. The hook side of the candy cane should be down and be facing out so that the arch of the cane can rest on the table at the bottom of the candle.
2.  Glue a second candy cane on the opposite side of the candle and the next two should be halfway between the first two on opposite sides from each other.  
3.  Glue the last four candy canes between the first four making sure the arches are level so the candle will set evenly on the table.

4.  Tie a ribbon or ribbons around the canes and use as a part of a centerpiece or on side tables
