Seems like when the kids go back to school, the craft show season isn’t too far off. My first craft show of the season is at the Last Run Car Show in Arkansas City, Kansas at the end of this month. It has always been a good show for fall, Halloween and Christmas decor, as well as all my home decor junk projects.
These primitive wrapped candy canes are what I worked on the other day.
Amazing what an ugly plastic candy cane can be transformed into. I bought the canes on clearance after Christmas last year.
Ripped fabric and glue created a decoration that was more my style.
A little pine, pip berries and raffia completed the canes.
My pile of finished canes.
This picture gives a better idea of their size.
I found these little aluminum stakes while cleaning out the garage. Since we had no idea why we had them, I decided to make mini wrapped candy canes for tree ornaments.
They bent really nice, so I was able to reshape them easily.
Wrapped them with fabric…
…and tied a bit of pine with raffia around the cane.
