Beaded Candy Canes

Beaded Candy Cane

This candy cane is very simple.  My grandchildren helped me make these a few years ago when I was in an ornie swap.

  • The size of the beads will determine the size of the finished ornament.
  • Slide a couple of red tri-beads or star beads onto heavy wire.  Wrap the wire around the beads inconspicuously so that they don't slide off.
  • Slide on a couple of clear or white beads and keep alternating colors until it is the length you want it.
  • Bend into a candy cane shape, wrap the end wire around an end bead and snip.
  • Glue on a small bow and tie on a hanger.
  • Add poem. You may want to leave off the last verse if for a younger child.
