Primcats Homespun Candy Cane Tutorial

Hi Friends,

Thought we would take a look back at my homespun candy canes and how to make them. Enjoy! 


Today I’m going to show you how to make these cute little homespun candy canes.


You need:

Plastic Candy Canes


Hot glue gun

Embellishments: Cheesecloth, Sweet Annie, Bells

So we start with this…


And some fabric…


Rip fabric into 1/2 strips then hot glue onto the end.


Tuck end corners into the first wrap and then just keep wrapping.


End it the same way you began… with a dab of hot glue.

After many hours… you will have a bunch of wonderful Candy Canes and a worn out cat from stealing all your ripped up strips of fabric.


Poofie says “Phew, Mom. That was exhausting. Lets nap now.”


Awwwww… sweet little kitty!


And wala… candy canes.



If you want to dress them up… I did some with sweet annie and cheese cloth, though I am severely allergic to Sweet Annie I know my prim friends love it so all my sweet annie ones are leaving, or have already left here.



They are so cute though. Wish I wasn’t allergic!


Wrapped up and ready to sell and gift!


You can also add bells. Super cute too!



These are great as bowl fillers, jar fillers, ornaments and even gift toppers.

Have fun with it!

Until next time…
