Here’s quick and easy ornament that adds a touch of rustic charm to a Christmas tree. I made these for Gloria’s first Christmas tree the year she was married. She has a beautiful rustic holiday decor all over her home. Being newly married, she didn’t have tons of ornaments, so I decided I could help change that!
These are made using two red pipe cleaners, twisted together to form a candy cane shape and then wrapped in jute. I started at the bottom and wound the jute upward to cover the candy cane. I used a small amount of hot glue at both ends to secure the jute. Repeat for the second candy cane.
Cross the two candy canes as shown and tie a pretty little ribbon around them. You might need a tiny dab of glue to hold them together securely. You could another ribbon to the back in a loop for hanging or just work a hook into the jute.
These are incredibly easy to make and don’t take much time at all. Inexpensive, quick and easy-my kind of craft! With a little help with the hot glue, this could be a fun craft to share with children. Sometimes, simple to make items can be the most fun.
