Homemade Christmas Tree Decorations – Candy Canes

This year I have fallen in love with these homemade woollen candy canes. They are easy to make and super cute.

What you need:

pipe cleaners

a ball of wool in your chosen colour (I have made these with bright red)

selection of small buttons

glue gun

Manipulate the pipe cleaners into a candy cane shape. You may need to cut them down slightly as they might be a bit too long. Take the ball of wool and start to wrap around the pipe cleaners. Once the pipe cleaners have taken a true candy cane shape, tie the wool to stop any unravelling. Next using the glue gun attach the buttons onto the candy cane for decoration. I have chosen multi coloured buttons but you could stick to a colour scheme.
