When I posted my Favorite Things at Christmas time, I mentioned that if you didn’t have a box or two of candy canes set aside; you might want to pick up some at an after Christmas sale. I did and I got them for less than a dollar!
Now, I am finally ready to show you what I do with these leftover candy canes.
In order to make this craft you will need to start with two, unbroken candy canes (wrappers still on).
Hot Glue them together to form a heart.
Let the heart dry on a flat surface. Be sure not to bump or move it until completely dry.
Next, cut 18 inches of ribbon. Any type will work.
You can decorate your heart with a bow or a rhinestone. You might like to add a cute button. Your imagination is the limit. I chose to keep mine plain. I liked the simplicity of this sheer ribbon.
After Valentine’s Day, I store the hearts away (I don’t recommend eating them), then I use them on my Christmas tree at the end of the year. The hearts, if packed correctly, will last indefinitely.
How do you repurpose your Holiday decorations and ornaments?
