I’m so happy you’re here today.
Are you a candy cane fan? I am more than a little obsessed with traditional (peppermint) candy canes and do my best to always have some on hand. I seem to find a reason to use them all times of the year.
I found myself with a large collection of candy canes after Christmas this year and with a little nudge from my favorite ladies over at Studio 5 I set off to create a collection of candy cane treats and crafts.
My #1 desire for this collection was to avoid anything Christmasy, I think it worked pretty well (that being said, most of these can be used at Christmas as well!) and they came together wonderfully.
To make the Candy Cane Valentine Wreath I started with a collection of 20 candy canes (these cute pink/red ones probably aren’t my favorite flavor but the kids love them, they’re Pixy Stix filled Cherry flavored).
Next I laid the candy canes out into pairs to make hearts and put the pairs together to make the wreath.
Once I had them all laid out I started gluing the backs of the candy canes together, once I had all the pairs glued together I started tacking the bottom and the tops together. When they were all glued together and had time to dry I used some red yarn to secure the pairs.
Once I had it all together I went back and forth on how I wanted it to look. I was so glad I hadn’t put away all my Christmas decorations yet because I really like how it looks with my red berry wreath behind it.
I used red tulle to hang it all together and then using red glittered letters made a little *Love* banner to hang on the front.While this was a fun project that turned out really cute I do want to give you a heads up. I put mine on a wall instead of a door so that the candy canes aren’t swinging each time the door is opened/closed, they are still candy canes after all so they can be broken. Just be careful.
I can’t wait to share the rest of my projects with you.
Here’s a peek at the projects and my segment on Studio 5!
Have a fantastic day and please if you liked this project let me know in the comments and share it with your friends!
