Holiday Centerpiece

Holiday Centerpiece

Total Time To Complete:
15 Minutes

Suitable for ages 3 - 12

My teenager created this fun candy-filled holiday centerpiece, but it is simple enough that younger children can do it too; they will just need a little help securing the twine and cutting the flowers. 

What you need:

  • Glass vase or glass hurricane for candles
  • Drinking glass or canning jar
  • Wonka® Christmas Nerds® Rope– quantity depends on the size of holder you will be using
  • Twine
  • Flowers

When choosing the size glass to place inside the holder, you want to allow a minimum of half an inch between the glass and the holder – enough space for the candy to fit in-between (see image below).

Before filling the space between the glass and holder with candy, put water in your glass, this reduces the risk of water splashing on the candy and making a mess.

Wrap a piece of twine around the top of the holder where the candy ends and where you would possibly see the flower stems if your glass is a little shorter than the holder like ours is. Trim flowers so they fit snuggly into the glass and so you cannot see the stems.
