Here’s what you will need for this festive Christmas Candy Cane!

  • Dollar Tree wreath form
  • Batting material, I used left over felt I had on hand
  • White burlap fabric, Hobby Lobby
  • Red burlap ribbon, Dollar Tree
  • Twine
  • Wood beads
  • Ribbon for the bow
  • Christmas floral sprigs, Dollar Tree
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

The first thing you will do is lay your candy cane wreath form on top of your batting. I used a double layer of white felt because I was out of batting and decided to just use what I had on hand. You will cut around your wreath form about a 1/2 inch away from the edge. You will trim the ends of your candy cane about a 1/4 inch from the end of the wire form. Now wrap the batting around your wreath form and hot glue the edges in place.

Once your batting is in place you will lay your wreath form on top of your double layered white burlap. You will cut your burlap about 1 1/2 inches away from the edges of the wreath form.

After your burlap is cut, lay one piece of your burlap cutout flat, place the wreath form on top of it and lay your second burlap cutout on top of it.

You will put a bead of hot glue along the edge of the wreath form on the bottom piece of burlap and press your top piece down to glue the two pieces together. I found it best to start gluing around the inside curve or your candy cane first. Continue gluing all the way around. It’s OK if your edges don’t line up perfectly. Your bottom edges will stick out farther then your top edges. We will trim them up later.

Now you will lay out you red burlap ribbon and cut the strips for your candy cane stripes. Lay them out the way you like them.

Hot glue the edges to hold the strips of ribbon in place.

After all your strips are glued on you can trim all the way around your candy cane. You will leave about a half inch of material all the way around your candy cane.

You can add a loopy bow with the ribbon of your choice. I used ribbon from Dollar Tree.

To make my loopy bow I layered three different ribbons. Each layer looped a little smaller then the one below it.

Cut a notch on each side if your ribbon stack at the center of your bow. Use a piece of twine to tie your ribbons together. Be sure to tie your twine through the notches you cut.

Next use a couple pieces of your ribbon to tie tails for your bow around those same notches you cut.

Flip your bow over and fluff your bow.

You can now attach your bow to your candy cane. I also added some berry and pine sprigs to dress my candy cane up a bit. I used hot glue to attach both my sprigs and my bow.

To hang my Candy Cane I folded a piece of twine in half. put 3 wood beads on it. slid the beads farther down then they would be, tied a knot at the folded end of the twine. Slide the beads up to the knot. Double knot at the bottom of the beads. Hot glue the twine to the back of your candy cane so the beads are able to be seen.

Your candy cane is now complete and ready to be hung on you front door or on any wall in your home! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and it was helpful to you.
