I’ve always loved the look of those vintage sugary candy canes, so I decided to try and make my own! Turns out it’s very easy to recreate this look, and these adorable candy canes can be used for so many different things, including an embellishment on a card or a gift package.
I found some red and white striped pipe cleaners at the craft store and trimmed them into different sizes, then the tops were bent. I gathered some Glossy Accents and fine glitter.
Next, I covered one candy cane at a time with the Glossy Accents. I used my finger to spread it around a bit onto the sides of the candy cane as well.
Last, I sprinkled on the fine glitter and let them dry.
Aren’t they just adorable? You could even make some to hang on your holiday tree.
Here’s one of the candy cane embellishments on a card, and as you can see it’s stapled onto the frame before the frame was adhered to the card.
I used Papertrey Ink’s Holiday Plaid paper pad in the background, the Center Style: Feminine die (frame), the Christmas Cheer die (sentiment), Santa Stationery stamp set (sentiment stamp), and the snowflakes are stamped from the Snowflake Medley stamp set.
