DIY Candy Cane Trees and Vase
Make the vase: Attach candy canes to a glass vase with hot-glue. Tie a ribbon around the center; fill with flowers.
Make the trees: Bake 3 candy cane sticks on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet at 225°F until just pliable, 3 to 6 minutes. Starting from bottom, quickly wrap candy around a cone-shaped Styrofoam form, trimming as needed and repeating until covered. Hot-glue red hots to starlight mints; attach to trees. To make a star-shaped mint topper, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Grease parchment and insides of cookie cutters. Set cutters on baking sheet; fill with a single layer of mints in bottom, breaking to fill any gaps. Bake at 350°F just until melted, 5 to 6 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes; remove cutters. Hot-glue star to top of tree.
