Candy Cane Ornaments

First let me start by saying that
if you are related to me, and going to a certain party on Saturday, stop reading right now....
The following is a secret!

These very nice carved candy canes came from



I bought them for myself last year and I'm buying 
them for gifts this year.



I started by writing names and the year,
 using a paint pen on each 
candy cane.














I made a bow with a length of jute and finished it off 
with a mini rusty clothespin.






The candy cane is attached to Christmas paper with a small glue dot.










Each ornament is wrapped in a little cello bag with a vintage label...


Now they're ready for all the cousins at the family 
Christmas party...


But until then, they're put away.... shhhhh!

  5. Nothing beats a homemade gift at Christmas, and candy is as much fun to make, as it is to receive. Moreover, candy is love... :)

  7. Those are cute Susan, but when I first saw them my head said..... "oh mannnn, Susan made wood candy canes!". I'm relieved you didn't make them, because I want some and if I add one more thing to Brawns list Santas gonna put him on the naughty list for what he says to me.
