Candy canes wrapped in yarn – my new favorite project.
To make these I just tied yarn to end of candy cane – leaving about 2 inches of yarn hanging out. I wrapped yarn around candy cane going up and then back down again and tied the ends together to secure and trimmed excess yarn close to the knot. To cover the ends of the candy cane, I wrapped the yarn down over the tip and then around the sides to hold in place.
So now you have over a dozen yarn wrapped candy canes – what to do with them? Here are a few suggestions…
I secured a few white yarn canes to an artificial garland and wrapped it around a mirror.
To hold canes in place, I just tied them onto garland with the same color yarn.
Hang them on the tree or secure to an evergreen wreath.
Add to a package or place one on each plate for a special holiday dinner.
Display them in a vase.
