One I can share anyway.
I’m still trying to figure that one out. Should I all save the projects for next year, or delay publishing the post until after Christmas, should I post them anyway?
Opinions welcomed here.
One project I can share is quick & easy & dare I say, inexpensive? Who knows where I saw this on the internets, but I just had to make it especially considering you can get a box of 12 candy canes from the dollar store. My wreath took 2 boxes minus 2 candy canes. They just fit together better that way.
I started out Scotch-taping them together from the back, thinking that you could still eat them if you really wanted, but that didn’t hold very well. I highly recommend hot glue. No one really wants to eat candy canes anyway. Am I right? I used regular gift ribbon to “tie” (artistically speaking) the canes together. Green, or white ribbon could have looked nice too.
The large red hanging ribbon at the top I took off an old gift bag & ironed it smooth. Again you can use whatever is convenient.
I liked this project because it was something I could give away to anyone that wasn’t something to eat & it was quick to make. Even though I appreciate all the sweet treats this time of year I wanted to find something that people didn’t feel obligated to eat & wasn’t overpowering home decor-wise. I probably should have made more. I probably will.
When was the last time you ate a candy cane?
