Candy Cane Wreath

Merry Christmas!

Today I am not scrapping but crafting.  As you can tell by the title it is a candy cane wreath.  All I needed was:

20 candy canes – I bought an extra pack because so many were broken.

small ornaments for decorating the outside of the wreath

1 large circular (flattish) ornament for the center of the wreath

Red ribbon

Hot glue gun and glue sticks

I saw this on Facebook but I changed it up a bit.

Hot glue two candy canes back to back (10 times).

After all 10 sets were glued together I placed them in a circle.  They should fit perfectly.  I then start hot gluing the sets together where they touched.  (The bottom edges and the edge of the hooks).

After the sets were all glued together I glued on the center ornament.  I used a lot of hot glue because it gave the wreath more strength.

The wreath has all the ornaments added.

I then added all the ornaments around the sides of the wreath.

Finally, I tied a long ribbon and then hooked it through where the top canes come together forming a heart.

I used a lot more hot glue than the one on Facebook. The one on Facebook tied the 10 sets of canes together instead of gluing them together.  I think hot gluing made the wreath stay together better.  Of course, I also used different ornaments.

This is a cute and pretty inexpensive Christmas decoration.  I hope you give it a try!

God bless!

  1. Cute and pretty. It’s so much fun making things for Christmas. I’m gonna try to start early next year. Sureeeee. A sweet little wreath to hang on the wall.

    • It wasn’t hard, Terri. I did have to put it on hold and go buy another box of candy canes because so many of the first two boxes were broke. Frustrating!

      • I saw where some ladies made this with plastic candy canes. I might do this next year. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it.
