Step 1

To duplicate the vases shown, use clear shipping tape to stack one can on another for the tall vase. For either size vase, wrap strips of two-sided tape -- each strip is about 13-3/8 inches long -- around the can. Remove the backing from the first two strips.

Step 2

With the can resting on a flat surface, lightly press Christmas ornaments against the tape with the neck facing down and touching the can to cover it. The ornaments on the bottom row should just touch the work surface.

Step 3

After you arrange the bottom row, press the Christmas ornaments firmly against the tape to hold them in place. Remove the remaining backing strips as you work your way up the can sides adding rows of ornaments. The top row should cover the top edge of the can.
