Candy Cane Wreath

This wreath is an ornamentation inspired by our Christmas candy. So simple to make, yet such a nice touch to the special Christmas corner of your house.

You will need:

  • Candy cane frame
  • Fuzzy sticks
  • Red, shiny flowers

You may choose any colors or pattern you wish. For this example, we will be using the candy cane colors. This is the perfect red-and-white candy cane wreath to have by the tree!

Step 1

Begin to twine the red fuzzy sticks or pipe cleaners onto the candy cane, starting from the end of the frame.

Step 2

Weave the red sticks through and around wire bars until you reach the first thin bar.

Continue to weave the sticks through the frame until a section of the cane is red.

Continue to weave the sticks through the frame until a section of the cane is red.

Step 3

Begin to weave the white sticks through the wreath until another section is completed. After that white section is complete, begin with the red fuzzy sticks again. Shift back and forth from the red and white colors to create a big candy cane.

Step 4

Continue this pattern until the entire wreath is covered with red and white fuzzy sticks.

Step 5

Attach some red flowers to the wreath with a spare fuzzy stick. For some optional additional flair, you could add some silver leaves as well, or you could choose a different color pattern other than red and white.

Mini Wreath

This cute tiny wreath is perfect to hang on the tree or anywhere around the house. This little wreath is also great as an ornament or a child’s gift.

You will need:

  • Mason jar lid
  • Green fuzzy sticks
  • Little red bow
  • Tiny bell (optional)
  • Red string
  • Hot glue (optional)

Step 1

Wrap some green fuzzy sticks or pipe cleaners around the metal ring of a mason jar lid.

Step 2

Cover the entire ring with green fuzzy sticks. You may want to apply some hot glue to keep them in place.

Step 3

Tie or glue a red bow on top of the wreath. I added a tiny bell to hang in the center of wreath with string—this step is entirely optional. Red yarn will work best!

Enjoy these wreaths in that special corner of your home. Merry Christmas!
