HOLIDAY CRAFT: Easy Candy Cane Ornaments

candycaneornamentWHAT YOU’LL NEED: A pack of pipe cleaners (a.k.a. “chenille stems”) in holiday colors — red, green, white, gold, silver, etc.

[If you’re lucky enough to find red-and-
white or green-and-white striped ones at your local dollar store or craft store, try those. Just cut them in half and form them into a hook.]

YOUR AMAZINGLY EASY CANDY CANES ARE JUST A FEW STEPS AWAY:

1/ If your pipe cleaners are a solid color (not pre-striped), simply wrap two complementary colors together to resemble a candy cane.

2/ Cut the pipe stems in half length-wise, so they’re about 6 inches long.

3/ Curve the top to make the stem resemble a cane.Candy Cane Hooked on Light Switch

4/ Hang your assortment of colorful holiday candy canes on your tree (or all around your house!) by simply hooking them on. You can also use them as festive package or gift card decorations.

Happy Holidays!
