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
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.
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!
