A Candy Cane Treat - Part 1

It's not every day that I air my mistakes before the entire blogging world, but today is the day.

I bought the wrong kind of candy canes.

There was an amazingly cute craft in a magazine that I'd been saving for just this week, so I went to the dollar store and bought two packages of candy canes. They're all pretty and red and perfectly striped.

But then I got home and reread the instructions. Instead of my pretty, edible candy canes, I needed the candy cane ornaments made of plastic. Real ones won't work.

So, that one will have to wait until next year. And now I have 24 candy canes. What's a girl to do?

Make candy cane crafts and recipes! Yay!

So here's the easiest, cutest candy cane craft int he entire world. They're perfect for a quick gift, decoration or ornament.

All you need are two candy canes and a hot glue gun. Please leave the candy canes wrapped, unless you plan to never, ever eat them.


After preheating your glue gun, place two drops of glue on one candy cane. One will go almost to the end of the curved part and the other where you want the two sticks to cross.


IMMEDIATELY lay the second candy cane on top and press together. Don't let go, don't move, don't pass go and don't collect $200. Hold them together for about half a minute, just to make sure they're good and tight. Then lay them aside briefly until they're completely cool and dry.

You can use these as table decorations, tie a Bible verse to them for a gift or add them to your Christmas greenery, swags and garland. Just be gentle - they're delicate and fragile. Trust me...I know.
