For spring and Easter this year, I wanted to try the simple craft of a candy-filled vase. Florists have used the 2 vase technique for years. Get a clear glass vase that is wide and tall enough to hold a smaller vase. Then fill the area between the 2 glass walls with candy. You can use jelly beans, candy corn in fall, or pastel mints for Easter and spring. I bought a simple glass vase and pastel mints at Dollar Tree. I added a plastic glass for the insert.
You can layer the candy by color if you so desire. First separate mints by color. If your smaller vase is short, do a layer of candy before inserting vase.
I like the look of the layers, but I prefer a mix of pastels for spring.
I found a simple bouquet of tulips. They are white edged with pink. I cut the tulips and arranged them in the glass of water. Really you could use faux flowers for a seasonal display that doesn’t change for several months. Today I’m using a vintage table scarf for my dining table; it was my mother’s and was originally purchased about 1960. I like to pull it out occasionally and use it on real wood. The white cotton pops against the brown grain.
To complete the centerpiece, I added a thrift store spring figurine of a rabbit and duck with a few pastel mints.
I love the look!
It’s very easy to make too.
