These candy canes are great for everyone’s diet! They are completely guilt free: No Fat, milk, sugar, whey, carbs, calories, gluten, etc! I think these candy canes look great in an empty box of real candy canes! My children and I have had so much fun coming up with different things that candy canes can be made out of!
Pom poms! Awesome. Just string a thin wire through them to be able to bend them to the candy cane shape. I love how fluffy these are. These were using medium size pom poms.
Oh, beads. So quick and easy for the kids. I just had the kids string the beads on to pipe cleaners.
I had to make a beaded one with some of my prettier beads, too!
As always, I had to use Polymer Clay, because I love it so!
Even straight up paper ones are quite fun.
What is easier than twisting 2 pipe cleaners together?
Oh even sparkly ones in this box! Notice the 4th one from the left? Yup, crocheted! Betcha didn’t know I could pull that off. I made it up as I went along. I first just made a chain stitch with red yarn. Then, added the green one, twisting the red chain as I went along. I did have to then thread a pipe cleaner through the center, to make it hold it’s shape.
These are making their way to a special kid on my list who has to go completely without sweets! This way he can still have his own candy canes!
We always hang our candy canes on our Christmas Tree. Whenever people come over, we give them out. I made a few batches of this type of candy canes. Again, we did hand out one set of them, with another getting ready to go as well. We did keep some of them for our tree as well!
I am not showing my whole tree, as it probably looks like most everyone else's who let their kids decorate it! But I do like showing off parts of my tree. My other favorite parts of my tree are my garland, my homemade retro mice ornaments, and I'm dying to make some silhouette ornaments like Anjeanettes. Another favorite tree, however, isn't the kind to put gifts under. It is Anjeanette's Fabric Card Holder Tree, or even her fabric tree advent calendar!
