December 19th: An Easy Christmas Craft

Dec 19th - Blogmas

You were going to make things this Christmas, weren’t you…

You had so many plans; you were going to do so much, but now it is less than a week until Christmas and you haven’t done any of it. There are the cards to write, decorations to put up, presents to wrap – that’s if you have even finished buying them. One thing you definitely don’t have time for now is crafting!

What if I told you…

…that there was a way that you can tick ‘do a craft’ off the Christmas Bucket List, sort some cool, sweet, snacks and get some decorations sorted all in one go, and in less than ten minutes?
Let me show you how.

What you will need:

This is all you will need, and chances are you have this stuff lying around the house right now.

All you need is Candy
Some scissors might also be a useful addition to this lot

*An even number of candy canes
*Sticky tape
*Aesthetic raffia, or string, or that shiny stuff you tie around presents…anything like that.

That’s it.
Now you just need to attach the long ends together with the sticky tape,as per the photo below, and then stick the ‘hooks’ together to form a heart shape. When you stick the top part together, remember to include a loop of your chosen cord.

Making christmas, Making Christmas
Making Christmas, making Christmas, Is so fine… (Wanders off to kidnap Sandy Claws…)

You can then hang these candy cane hearts on the tree, give them as gifts, used as gift tags on presents, or you could just eat them. Either way you have created something very christmassy and you should be very proud of yourself – in fact reward yourself with a swig of something seasonal and a munch on a spare candy cane (yes, that one, the one you broke while trying to stick them together the first time)

How did your candy canes go? If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, tag me in any photos you put up so I can congratulate you on a job well done. Share you link in the comments so I can come see. Maybe we should invent a hashtag? #PPTKOCandyHeart or something…
