Bowdabra Holiday Decor: Candy Cane Centerpiece

I love using candy canes in my holiday decorating. Candy canes are pretty, inexpensive, and after the holidays they are a yummy treat. I use candy canes on wreaths, centerpieces, and even with apples for reindeer decorations. Creating this candy cane centerpiece is simple, inexpensive and I purchased most of the items I needed at the Dollar Store. Bowdabra Craft Tools and ribbon are available at most craft stores and online at Bowdabra Ribbon, Crafts & Things Store.

Mini Bowdabra ®
Bowdabra ® Bow Wire
”5 Candy Canes
”Small Vase
”Glass Beads
”Large Floral Picks
”1.5 Antique Gold Satin Ribbon
”5/8? Antique Gold Satin Ribbon
