Thought I would share a little step by step with you. Gather your supplies up. I also gathered up some little doodads to fancy them up a bit. I actually tea stained my pipe cleaners for a more aged and prim look before I assembled. Once you have everything just gather your red and white stems and cut them in half for smaller to medium candy canes. Than just simply add a dab of hot glue to one end and wrap your torn ribbon around the white stems. I loosely wrapped because I wanted to still see a bit of the pipe cleaner. Than from here just wrap that stem around your red. Once you are done shape into your candy cane shape.
As you can see I made quite a few and glittered some up. Another one I simply gussied up with some lipstick red seam binding , a snowflake , and a faux berry. I also paired them up and added to the front of a Christmas album. I am going to add a bunch to a christmas bowl this year for decoration. They would also look adorable tied to packages or on the tree all over! I am thinking I might try another ribbon next time....maybe a lace of some sort. Well hope you enjoy! hugs, cherry
What a brilliant idea! They look darling, especially in that bowl.
These are really cute! Love them. That's when I get alot of my ideas too... as I lay in bed trying to get to sleep... sometimes I even turn on the light and write the idea down, as sometimes I forget it by the next morning. I love the idea of making small candy canes and adding to the cover of a little album.. and love them in the bowl too!
