The tall clear vases can be found at Dollar Tree and the vase filler is made with items you probably already have in your pantry.
Supplies I used:
- Clear vase
- White rice (uncooked)
- Food coloring
- Ziplock sandwich bags
- Flameless votive
To begin, pour 1 cup white rice into a Ziploc bag. Add food coloring. Start with a small amount - you can add more incrementally if you need a more intense color.
Seal bag and knead the bag to work the color into the rice.
Once you've reached the desired color, pour rice onto paper towel to dry for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, rice is ready to place in vase.
Using a small (1 tablespoon) scoop, I placed a scoop of red rice into the vase. Then, using the handle end of a wooden spoon, I pressed the rice firmly into the vase. Do the same with the white rice (uncolored) and then blue. Repeat layers until vase is filled 2" from top, allowing space for candle.
Add a festive bow and a flameless votive and you're all set!
This is a great "go to" vase filler option for any occasion - just choose food coloring to coordinate with your décor. And, filler can be reused. Store in sealed bags between use.
