Candy Cane Hearts

Just another quickie holiday project that can be hung on the tree or used as a treat on a beautifully wrapped gift. And they are easy to make!

Candy Cane Hearts
You will need individually wrapped candy canes in sets of two
thin ribbon
hot glue gun and glue sticks
your choice of artificial Christmas flowers, or Christmas decor

 Using two candy canes hold them so they form a heart shape and using glue gun, glue where they meet at the top and the bottom. Take a piece of ribbon approximately 8 - 10 inches long and tie one end together to form a circle.

 Lay heart over ribbon and then pull the tied end over where the candy canes meet and then under the loop at the top of the ribbon, forming a slipknot. I add a drop of hot glue to hold the ribbon in place on the candy canes. Last, add a flower, or decoration of your choice.

These are your average 6 inch candy canes. I saw some larger ones, about 10-12 inches long that would look great hanging on the front door, welcoming guests.
