Ok, so now it's December 1st, we can all officially start getting excited about Christmas!! Here is a quick and easy project for those who like to make new decorations for Christmas but are short for time.
You will need:
A box of candycanes (I bought mine in The Works, 10 for 99p)
A glue gun
Mini bows ( I boght 10 for 50p from my local fabric shop)
Narrow ribbon to hang the decorations
Take 2 candycanes:
Use a little bit of glue on the top and bottom to glue them together
Then turn it over and use a little bit of glue on the top and bottom to make sure it is properly stuck together
Use a tiny amount of glue to stick on the mini bow to the middle of the heart shape
When the glue is dry, the decoration is ready to hang!!
Use a length of ribbon in the colour of your choice and simply tie round the top of the heart.
This literally takes 5 minutes and the heart shapes would look particularly good attached to your pressies instead of bows. And the best part is you can eat them so they make a good alternative to chocolate tree decorations!
