Sweet & Sinister Halloween Vase
Create a sweetly sinister Halloween vase by adhering black licorice twists to the outside of a potato chip can.
What You'll Need
- Potato chip can (empty and clean)
- Ruler and rubber band
- Crafts knife
- Black licorice twists
- Hot-glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
- Wide ribbon
- Florist's foam
- Silk flowers
How to Make It
- Cut an empty, clean potato chip can 1/4-inch shorter than the licorice twists with the crafts knife. Tip: To cut a straight line around the can, wrap a rubber band just below where you want to cut.
- Hot-glue licorice twists vertically around the can. Glue the twists close together to completely cover the can.
- Hot-glue a band of wide ribbon around the center of the can.
- Cut a piece of florist's foam to fit inside the can.
- Place the cut florist's foam inside the can and arrange the silk flowers by inserting them into the foam.
Tip: For a larger floral arrangement, use an oatmeal container. Or arrange real flowers in a slim water-filled vase and place inside the decorated can.
