Primitive Candy Cane Tutorial {revisit}

Primitive Candy Canes

You will need:
  • 5 pack plastic candy canes {mine are from The Dollar Tree}
  • red/white ticking {or any other Christmas fabric you like}
  • glue
  • cinnamon

Make a small cut a little less than 1 inch and rip the length of your fabric. Then cut that length in half you will use about 1" x 30" strips per candy cane. Add a dot of glue on the curve end of your candy cane.

Place the end of your strip of fabric on the glue and cover the tip.
Then start wrapping, you will need to pull your strip taunt as you go.

Wrap all the way to the end and cut at an angle, place a small amount of glue to seal the end.
Glue the bottom tip and push the ends of fabric down to finish.Wrapped candy cane.
Pour a little cinnamon in a container.
Use paper towel dipped in cinnamon and rub dry on your fabric.
Not only will they look good, they will smell great!
Wrap in a bundle with twine add a tag, and you have a fun gift.

Where is the scratch and smell button! I love anything cinamon...these are so cute and simple to make. I might try and do this with Lexi...she is wanting to craft a lot I guess I better start doing some with her.

Love this idea. I may just have to try those, even though decorating for Christmas is on hold. I think it is a must -do project. Jackie
