The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to bust out those holiday craft supplies to make a Candy Cane Ornament! If you love making candy cane Christmas decorations or any sort of ornament -this is a tutorial for you. We use simple flexible wire to give this ornament a little bit more sophistication than the typical pipe cleaner, although using pipe cleaners can be another option for this very candy cane craft.
How do we do it all during the holiday season? The shopping, the baking, the decorating, the cooking and cleaning, yes, we can’t forget the cleaning! Well, one simple thing that is always on our holiday to-do list is creating family memories together. What better way to do that than to create crafts together that are simple and require very few materials. This one is great because along with the memory-making you also get simple handmade ornaments for your tree. When there is a craft that requires very little preparation work, has minimal materials and is easy, even for the little ones, then count us in! This Simple Beaded Candy Cane Ornament DIY does not disappoint, with minimal materials and inexpensive items to buy it is a must-make during the holiday season.
How to Make a Simple Beaded Candy Cane Ornament:
- Cut a 8 in length of wire and use the needle nose pliers to bend up on one end.
- Add red, white and green beads, alternatively, until there is about ½ inch length remaining.
- Bend up remaining end with needle nose pliers.
- Shape this into a candy cane shape.
- Hang on your tree.
This candy cane ornament can be made using a variety of bead colors, shapes or formed into many other holiday creations. Other ideas include using various lengths of wire to create a star, tree or simple circle wreath. This is such an easy craft that your whole family will enjoy getting in on the fun!
Create a fun family craft night by warming up some hot cocoa or apple cider, putting on some holiday music to create a fun atmosphere and then let your families’ creativity come alive.
