DIY Valentine Candy Vase

I am completely in love with our new dining room table! A friend and co-worker was getting rid of a large farm-style bench table and without knowing that it was EXACTLY what we’d been saving for, she asked if we were interested in it! Umm, YES! I was so excited and knew my husband would love it, so she helped me move it into our house when he was gone at a basketball game a few weeks ago. He was completely surprised and of course love the table! Our boys love sitting on the bench for dinner, and we all love that it is perfect for entertaining guests for dinner; one of our favorite things to do! 

Our new table has me busy dreaming up ideas for centerpieces, table runners, etc. to ‘polish’ off our dining room. It has now become one of my favorite rooms in our house; which it perfect because it is the first room your walk into when you enter our home! For Valentine’s Day, I have been working on a little Valentine’s Dinner for my husband and I (coming soon) and needed a beautiful centerpiece for our table. I am absolutely loving this candy-filled flower vase with matching red tulips; it makes me smile every time I walk into the room! The bright red of the tulips and the bright red Hot Tamales give our dining room such a ‘pop’ of color! 

Candy-lined flower vases are perfect for just about any holiday and I knew Hot Tamales (one of my husband and I’s favorite candies) were a fun treat to fill our vase! However, Valentine’s Day fills the stores with all sorts of delicious treats you could use in your own vase: conversation hearts, red hots, Hershey kisses, etc. Have fun with it! 

DIY Valentine Candy Vase


  • Large Vase 
  • Smaller Vase/Cup (must fit inside the larger one and be close to the same height)
  • Hot Tamales (or any other favorite candy)
  • cut tulips
  • Water


1.Begin by cleaning both vases. Place the smaller vase inside the larger vase and hold steady.

*Note: I actually used a large plastic cup as my small vase.

2. Gently fill the area between the larger vase and smaller vase with candy. Be careful not to move the smaller vase off center allowing candies to get under the bottom, also be careful not drop the candy into the smaller vase! Take your time filling the larger vase.

3. Very carefully fill the smaller vase 3/4 of the way full with water (and plant food if you have any).

*Be very careful not to get plant food or water on the candy!

4. Finally, cut, remove extra leaves, and arrange the tulips in the vase to your preference.
