These are great for the small primitive trees. And you can make these super fast with very little material. Always a plus!
I got the idea for these from the blog eyeballs by day, crafts by night. And immediately bookmarked it because I knew it was a cute Christmasy craft to do. And best of all, they will even look cute on your little prim trees all year, if you wish.
Here's how I made them:
I started with the tiny little wire ones, that had some type of bakers' twine wrapped around them on Etsy. I couldn't find the more plastic common ones this time of year. But you can bet that at the after Christmas sales, this year, I will hoard them all. lol.
See how small they are compared to a normal sized pen. Super cute!
All I did was put some hot glue at the small curved end, and began wrapping a strip of cute fabric around in a circle. About mid way down the side, I put another dab of hot glue to make sure the fabric held tight.
Then I just finished wrapping and added some hot glue at the end, cut it, and pinched the ends together to kinda seal it. Notice I left the little strings of fabric sticking out. I like that look for the old country themed trees.
Here's another pic to show the size.
These have already been a hit last week in my booth, and I'm gonna try to make some more over the weekend.
TIP: If you don't have these little candy canes, you could always just use some of those rolls of wire either from a craft or hardware store. Just bend them in the shape, snap with wire cutters and cover! I did this when I ran out and it's gonna be a way cheaper process!
Happy Crafting until next time ya'll,
