I can’t even begin to start to explain how much I loved candy as a kid. But there was just something about candy canes. Just hanging on the Christmas tree taunting me with their sweetness. I’m sure my parents were exhausted by my begging for one every time I walked past. Especially if we had the blueberry ones! So for the other childhood sugar addicts out there – these macrame candy canes are perfect decor to have around to remind you of your favorite childhood holiday candies while leaving room in your stomach for the better sweets. Ha!
These work great as ornaments or as wall decor! They also make a sweet little gift topper that way it makes the gift look adorable (see evidence below) and then they can use it as decor at their house! Plus it’s a great craft to make while watching a cozy Christmas movie so making a batch of them makes for a fun little evening!
Materials Needed for Macrame Candy Canes:
- cotton piping (I usually buy mine at Joann’s by the foot but you can also buy packs of them)
- floral wire
- wire snips
- embroidery thread or string
- hot glue gun
