Try This! Thursday - Candy Stick Vase

I can't believe that Christmas Eve is a week from today! Where did December go? Better yet where did 2009 go? Nevertheless, I have found the perfect craft for you and your child to make together! You can use it as a beautiful center piece for your Holiday table, or simply give it to a special someone on your Christmas list. Either way, it is a super cute craft and I think I may even make it myself! Remember, I am not a very crafty person! So, Try This!!!

What You Will Need
- Aluminum can
- Candy
- Double-sided foam mounting tape
- Ribbon
- Plastic cup

- To make one, first snugly wrap 3 or 4 rings of double-sided foam mounting tape around a clean, dry, and labelless aluminum can (ours was 15 ounces).
- Peel off the tape's protective covering to expose its second sticky side.
- One at a time, attach colorful individually wrapped candy sticks (available at candy shops; we used 26) to the tape, setting them as close together as possible and pressing them firmly in place.
- For a festive finish, tie a ribbon around the container. To use the vase for fresh flowers or plants, set a plastic cup inside the can as a liner before adding water.
