If you want to learn how to make a simple but beautiful Easter decoration which can go perfectly in any setting, you will want to try making a colorful candy vase. This video tutorial breaks it down into simple steps. Hardly any materials are needed, and no tools are required at all. That means that this is a project just about anyone can do.
Recently, one of my friends asked me if I had any ideas for DIY Easter decor which would be appropriate for her office front desk. She wanted something which was in keeping with the holiday, but a little more "grown-up" than bunnies or chicks.
After I thought about it for a while, I came up with this idea for making a DIY candy vase. It definitely shouts “Easter,” but doesn't look out of place in a professional setting.
Below, you can view the tools and materials you need for this project, which you will see are very minimal. I have also written up some directions to go with the video tutorial. Let's go ahead and get started now.
Step by Step Photo and Video Tutorial
This project is versatile in a couple of ways. First of all, you can display it anywhere. Consider putting one of these on a table or cabinet at home, or setting it on your desk at work. It also makes for a lovely centerpiece for an Easter party.
The other reason this project is versatile is because there are so many different ways that you can customize it. Just by changing the shape or size of the vase you use, you can give it an entirely different look.
You can use just a few layers or a whole bunch. You could alternate between just a couple of colors, or you could make an entire rainbow gradient. There are so many ways you can let your creativity flow.
One more thing which is great about making this DIY Easter vase is that no cutting or gluing of any type is required. With their colors and texture, the candies also offer a pleasing sensory experience. So this would be a fun activity to do with your little ones.
Should you use real or fake flowers? That is totally up to you based on how you plan to display the vase and how much maintenance you want to do.
If you are just going to use this as a centerpiece for a one-time event, using fresh flowers would definitely add to its appeal.
On the other hand, if you're going to display this for a month at home or at the office, using faux flowers is probably a better option. It will save you a lot of time and trouble, and it will help you to avoid triggering anyone's allergies unintentionally.
