I got this idea from Ann at This Simple Life and thought I would try it. She used wax on her canes but since I did not have any candles to melt down I just gave them a tea bath and then added cinnamon. I bought these candy canes at the Dollar store for $1.00 for 6. Just cut the hanging string off and they are ready to go. Cut muslin or whatever material you choose to use long enough to wrap around the canes.
Put a dab of hot glue on the bottom and wrap all the way to top and add another dab of hot glue
After their tea bath and sprinkle of cinnamon.
Added some berries and tied them with a scrap of material. Their primness (is that a word) is not showing up to good in the picture, they look better in person. I want to try my next batch using wax so I have to remember to buy some candles when I next visit the Dollar Store.
