Fabric Candy Canes

This cute little candy cane decor is perfect for a last minute neighbor or teacher gift.

If you’re the crafty type,  you probably have everything you need on hand already; if not, it will just take a quick trip to the craft store to get what you need.

Start with some heavy wire – use a wire hanger if you’ve got one.  Bend it into a loose candy cane shape.  Once it looks about how you want it to, use pliers to squeeze it together tightly, and tuck in the sharp ends

so it looks like this:

Now you will wrap it with cardboard. I used a paper towel tube, but you could use cardstock, or whatever you like.  The point is simply to give yourself  something to attach the fabric to and to give the shape a little more substance.  I cut the tube into a spring like this

and then hot glued it to the bottom of the wire

and started wrapping it up the wire form, dotting it here and there with hot glue as needed.  I found it easier to straighten the wire out to wrap the cardboard, then re-bend it once the glue was set.


Make a second one just like it, and the finished forms will look like this

Now tear strips of fabric an inch or so wide.  (I pulled out a few rows of thread along one long side of the strip to give it a raggy look.)  I used this bright red polka dot fabric, and the end result is fun and perky, but I think it would also look great in a darker red plaid for a more shabby look.   What about using a color besides red?  You could really have a lot of fun with this – it doesn’t take much fabric and is a great fabric-stash-busting project.  Just make sure your embellishments match the tone of the fabric you choose.

Wrap the strips around the cane, overlapping slightly as you go, and using a bead of hot glue along the top of the strip to hold it in place.  Make sure that the fabric starts and ends beyond the top and bottom of the cane enough to cover the wire form.


With one cane on top of  the other, tie them together with a ribbon, then embellish.

I Mod Podged scrapbook paper onto a small wood star, then drilled a hole through the top point.  Print a tag with a Christmas message, cut it out and punch a hole in it.  Then, using another, smaller ribbon, thread it through the tag, then through the star, then through a decorative button and tie it all around the larger bow.
