The Twelve Days of Ornaments - Day Four
Everyone needs candy canes on their Christmas tree. How about permanent ones that's you don't have to feel obligated to eat, even though you hate them but feel guilty about throwing them away? These are so cute, but I have to say that I honestly couldn't figure them out. So, we improvised. I recommend hot glue and also I thought they looked better with a crocheted (just a chain stitch) length of yarn. Ella really liked this one. She's got the hang of the hot glue gun and she made a bunch of these by herself. I also recommend cutting the pipe cleaners in half, because they look cuter shorter. On this one you can see I doubled up the end because it looked kind of dumb so long. Anyway, enjoy!
