I have one precious pipe cleaner candy cane mixed in with all of my other old Christmas ornaments. My son, when he was six, made one. It is not quite like the one pictured here, it is made from two cut, instead of folded, pipe cleaners. It is pink and green and covered with glitter.
-Pipe cleaners in red, green, and white
-(optional)Something to hang the candy canes on a tree (a ribbon or a wire hanger or just hang them on the tree as is.)
How To Make Them:
Fold the pipe cleaners in half. Loop together a white one and a colored one. Pull on them to set them. Bring them together (not all the way together, the two pieces should be held in a wide V) and start twisting them. Try to twist them evenly.
When you get to the end, try not to prick your finger and it might be a good idea to finish the bottom part for the children.
Shape the arch of the ‘candy cane’ with your fingers or hook it around something that is round and approximately 5/8ths inch in diameter. Either hang them on the tree ‘as is’ or attach a ribbon or a hook to the candy cane.
