DIY Winter White and Plaid Candy Canes

Hi Everyone,



This idea has been around for years and years.


You have probably made a few in your time.


I can remember using homespun fabrics for a primitive look.


These Candy Cane ornaments are easy to find, and


6 for $1.00 is a great deal.









I'm just going to show how I covered some this year for my craft show.



I used some batting scraps that I had been saving.




The batting was old and had an aged look....



....that's a nice way of saying discolored.


 



Cut strips about 1/2'' wide and about  30'' long and 2- 1'' squares for the ends.





 You may have extra to trim, it depends on how tight you wrap your candy cane.





You will need a glue gun.




I covered the ends with a small square about 1'' by 1''.





I like to wrap top to bottom.






I added a small scrap of garland and secured with twine.

The garland was getting shabby so I used wire cutters to dismantle it, now I have a

bag full of twistie-ties for crafting.

I have a large collection of vintage pins



and thought the pins would add at bit of shabby glam !







The pins were added by just putting the garland scrap through the pin back.






Then wrapping the wire garland piece to the candy cane.








In case I want to change or remove the pins.


If you like you can add a bit of white acrylic paint or glitter.








Then I added a crinkled tag-























Then I made a few more.. 

I had lots of scraps of plaid flannel.















Then  added a scrap of garland and jute.



















I put them on the table.






Won't these make pretty ornaments?
  I plan to use them as part of  my gift wrapping .

Merry Christmas!
