Someone posted this great Christmas floral arrangement idea
on facebook--thought I'd post it in case
you aren't on fb, or didn't see it.
Use masking tape to hold the candy canes onto the jar. Place the tape where you want the ribbon. Then cover it with a ribbon wide enough to cover the masking tape. Tie the ends of the ribbon in a bow for a finished look.
Add water to the jars when you add the roses (or other flowers). Add greenery as you like.
I thought it was adorable! :)
