Candy Cane DIY Christmas Ornaments

Christmas tree

Handmade Christmas ornaments make a heart-felt gift or add that special sparkle to your tree. Before buying a bunch of glittering holiday décor, get crafty with the kids and make a few of your own! There are hundreds of DIY ornament options out there. Whether you spend your days on Pinterest or have a favorite crafting blog, finding easy-to-make tree decorations isn’t exactly a challenge. If you’re looking for something that is truly super-simple, but still adds beauty to your home’s holiday look, these candy cane trees are perfect.

Materials:

  • Candy canes
  • Ribbon in Christmas colors (red and green) or gold and silver
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Cut equal pieces of ribbon. The amount of ribbon pieces that you need depends on how full you want the tree to be. You can create a sparse tree with four or five pieces, or a thicker one with several more.
  2. Tie the ribbons around the stick part of the candy cane (not the curve). Tie one ribbon above the next and so on.
  3. Cut the ribbons diagonally down both sides to make the triangle Christmas tree shape.
  4. Add one more ribbon to the top, knotting it into a bow.
  5. Hang the ornament on the tree, using the curved part of the candy cane as a hook.
