Making a Candy Cane Planter

This candy cane planter makes a great centerpiece and you can eat the candy canes after the holidays are over.



  • candy canes
  • large soup can
  • rubber bands
  • wire-edged ribbon
  • scissors
  • wire
  • hot glue gun (optional)
  • small potted plant


  1. Clean the can and remove the label. Then wrap a rubber band tightly around the can. Begin inserting candy canes behind the rubber band.
  2. Continue adding candy canes until the can is completely covered. The candy canes tend to tilt as they go around the can. Note: If you don't like this look, you can hot glue them to the can. Although this method makes it harder to remove and eat them later.
  3. Wrap a length of ribbon around the planer, hiding the rubber band. Secure it with a piece of wire. Then create a bow and wire it on too. Add a plant and enjoy your festive planter!

To give as a gift, add a 4 inch potted plant; a poinsettia, rosemary, or Christmas cactus looks really good.
