12 Days of Kid's Christmas Crafts #10

Chenille stems make the easiest candy canes.

White chenille stems
Red chenille stems

Hold one white and one red chenille stem side by side (they should be of equal length). Twist one end together and then twist together working your way down to the bottom.

Twist the bottom ends together to secure. Then bend into candy cane shape.

Other ideas:
  • Try different sizes by cutting chenille in half.
  • Try different styles of chenille, including bumpy or glittery chenille, for a different look.
  • Add pony beads or tri beads.
