Easy Christmas Craft - Candy Cane Pins

Candy Cane Pins

Here is an easy Christmas craft you can do with the kids in your life, or just for yourself. So easy!

Red & White Pipe Cleaners - (I also used green)
White Glue
Small Paint Brush
1 Jingle Bell (optional)
Pin Back

First take 2 pipe cleaners and twist together at the ends.

Fold over the ends of each so the sharp wire is underneath.

Twist together the entire length to resemble a candy cane.

Cut in the middle - you now have 2 pieces.

Bend each piece into a cane shape

Lay one candy cane on top of the other as shown and then tie a ribbon around them to hold the two pieces together.

I attached a small jingle bell to my ribbon before tying into a bow.

Pour some white glue onto a plate.

With a small brush paint the glue onto the pipe cleaners.

Sprinkle glitter onto the wet glue. Let dry overnight.

Glue a pin to the back and viola...a charming Christmas pin!

Hope you enjoyed this little tutorial.

Hugs & Kisses,
