DIY Christmas Centerpiece – Bundt Pan Candle Holder

by Freebies4Mom on December 20, 2019 6:02 pm

DIY Christmas Centerpiece - Bundt Pan Candle Holder

Here’s a table centerpiece that you can make with things you probably already have in your house! Do you have a  bundt pan? I love the way bundt pans look so I’ve got them displayed on the top of my china hutch in my dining room. I wanted to make a new centerpiece for our Christmas table by using my bundt pan and sticking a taper candle inside. It turns out that the small hole in the bundt pan is the perfect size for a taper candle to stand up in. Add some fresh cranberries to help support that taper candle and wrap it with any type of green garland. I used the holly garland that I use on my fireplace mantel.

I was shocked that I put this centerpiece together in about 5 minutes and created something completely new for the center of our dining room table. I love the way the candlelight reflects off the bundt pan! At first glance it doesn’t even look like a bundt pan because the cranberries are spilling out of the center. Since I’m using fresh cranberries, I can only use this centerpiece for a few days (those cranberries will wither and mold). As an alternative you could use fake cranberries.

What type of Christmas Centerpiece are you making for your table?

Santa & Rudolph Cookies from Nutter Butters from Family Dollar

Ready to learn how to make my Santa & Rudolph Cookies from Nutter Butter cookies? I promise they are easy to make and your kids can help you! This is an “assembly only” recipe, so no baking is involved! I melted chocolate chips that I bought at Family Dollar using a double broiler on the stove. If you’d like a thinner chocolate on your cookies, I recommend using brown melting chocolate. Here are the instructions to make these cookies:
Santa & Rudolph Cookies from Nutter Butters from Family Dollar

SANTA & RUDOLPH COOKIES

Ingredients Needed:

  • Nutter Butter cookies
  • Red Hot Candies
  • Small Round Red Chocolate Candies
  • Candy Eyes
  • Mini Pretzel Twists
  • Red Decorating Sugar
  • White Melting Chocolate
  • Semisweet Chocolate Chips or Brown Melting Chocolate

Step 1 – Microwave your white melting chocolate and semisweet chocolate chips or brown melting chocolate in the microwave following the package instructions.

Step 2 – Dip the Nutter Butter cookies in the melted semisweet chocolate chips or brown melting chocolate. I like to dip them so only one side is complete coated with chocolate.

Step 3 – Dip the Nutter Butter cookies in the white melting chocolate:  halfway on one side (for the beard) and a third of the way on the other side (for the hat).

Step 4 – Apply two candy eyes, one red hot candy and two pretzels to create the face of the Rudoph Cookie.

Step 5 – Dip part of the hat in the red decorating sugars being sure to leave a strip of white for the hat’s furry white rim.

Step 6 – Apply two candy eyes and one small round red chocolate candy by dabbing on a small amount of white melting chocolate to the back so they will stick to the cookie.

Step 7 – Drip a small amount of white melting chocolate onto one side of the hat to create the hat’s white pom pom.

Now you’ve got adorable cookies for Christmas and you didn’t even have to turn on your oven! Let’s see what else we can make for dessert.

Candy Cane Crush Trifle from Family DollarPin It

Now that you’ve got your cookies, let’s make a trifle! My family loves candy canes, so I crushed candy canes to include in my Candy Cane Crush Trifle for Christmas. Here are the instructions on how to make this dessert:

Candy Cane Crush Trifle from Family Dollar

CANDY CANE CRUSH TRIFLE

Ingredients Needed:

  • Chocolate Pudding (chilled overnight)
  • Vanilla Pudding (chilled overnight)

Step 1 – Your first layer will be vanilla pudding. Smooth into an even layer with the back of a spoon.

Step 2 – Your second layer will be brownie crumbs. Smooth into an even layer with the back of a spoon.

Step 3 – Your third layer will be crushed candy canes. You can crush them by placing them inside a sealable plastic bag and then crushing them with a hammer (kids love to help with this part).

Step 4 – Your fourth layer will be chocolate pudding. Smooth into an even layer with the back of a spoon.

Step 5 – Your fifth layer will be whipped cream. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top and serve!

22 oz. white chocolate (broken into pieces)
1/2 cup heavy cream
40 soft peppermint candies (crushed)
13.6 oz. dark chocolate (broken into pieces)

Directions:

1.  Cover a 9×13 metal baking pan with aluminum foil
2. Melt half of the white chocolate in the top of a double boiler on the stovetop to gently melt the white chocolate while stirring frequently.
3.  Spread the white chocolate into the baking pan and sprinkle 10 crushed peppermint candies evenly over the white chocolate.
4.  Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
5.  While the white chocolate is chilling, melt the dark chocolate and heavy cream in the top of a double boiler on the stovetop to gently melt the dark chocolate while stirring frequently.
6.  Pour the dark chocolate onto the chilled white chocolate and gently spread. 
7. Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

How to make DIY Viva® Vantage® Folded Pockets

It’s easy to make Folded Pockets using Viva® Vantage® paper towels with just a few folds and I show you how in my step-by-step tutorial. They are great to serve holiday candy in because it gives you a way to hold the candy for a pretty presentation.

Viva How To Blog 630x252

Step 1 – Trim your Viva® Vantage® towel to a 10 inch by 10 inch square. I used a paper cutter to measure and trim it.

Step 2 – Fold your towel in half to make a triangle.

Step 3 – Fold down the top corner to meet the bottom edge of your triangle.

Step 4 – Take the right corner of your triangle and fold it across to match your fold line.

Step 5 – Take the left corner of your triangle and fold it across to match your fold line. Now you have two flaps, one on each side.

Step 6 – Open up all of your folds so you again have a triangle shape.

Step 7 – Now fold in the right and left sides first.

Step 8 – Fold down the top triangle last to form your folded pocket.

Step 9 – Put something like Frosted Peppermint Bark inside your pocket, you may tape the edges to secure the pocket shape.

Kleenex® Holiday PomPom Covers

Kleenex All 630x438

I saw a photo of a Christmas wreath made with colorful pompoms and I loved the look reminiscent of brightly colored holiday lights and multi-colored round ornaments.

  1. Punch out (or cut out) the bottom of a Kleenex® Oval or Canister.
