Fabric covered Candy Canes

Last Christmas, I made these cute little candy canes. 

This year, I decided to put a little spin on it.

Two candy canes, a little ribbon and some bells.

Start with your crafty basics:


Plastic candy canes from the dollar store
hot glue gun
scraps of fabric
assorted holiday ribbon
small bells


Cut a strip of fabric about one inch wide and a bit longer than the length of the candy cane. Place a bit of glue on the end of the straight part of the candy cane and attach the fabric. Begin wrapping the fabric around the candy cane


Take two candy canes and tie them together with ribbon. Glue a small bell to the center of the ribbon, covering where you've tied.
