Several cute Christmas ideas...

I think the vase above is sooo sweet!


"Stretch a rubber band around a cylindrical vase, then stick in candy canes until you can't see the vase.  Tie a silky red ribbon to hide the rubber band.  Fill with red and white roses or carnations.  Good hostess gift for holiday parties."

Poinsettias would also look festive--scroll down to see that look here.  This crafter chose to glue (with a hot glue gun) her candy to a tin can.  Inexpensive glass vases can sometimes be found at The Dollar Tree or at craft stores though (for those that would prefer glue + glass).

*I think green and white candy canes would look festive with poinsettias!

Simply glue three candy canes together in order to create an easel, though I suppose they could also be rubber-banded together.  I guess a hot glue gun would work the best, though super glue might adhere these semi-weighty candies pretty quickly as well.  

I think larger candy canes would work well to hold, say, a menu or poem.  Little ones could carry name cards for individual place settings or cards that have the names of foods that are being served on them (these could be put beside dishes at get-togethers so people would know exactly what they were eating).

I might just have to Rose & Robin-style these little easels sometime in the future (hint: there are visions of pink and white--and maybe even turquoise--candy canes dancing in my head).

I think these definitely look cuter with the wrappers removed.  They could probably be stored for future use in zip-lock bags in a not-too-warm environment.  I'd think they could even be sprayed with matte or glossy sealant.

Here are some more examples...

{buttons are always a bonus}

Here's another style of place card holders for table settings that are adorbs...

What about a l♥vely wreath!

Candle holders!
