10 favorite candy cane-inspired crafts

There are few things that say “Christmas” to me quite like candy canes do…maybe it’s the colors, the peppermint taste, or maybe just the fact that they remind me of the candy cane reindeer we used to make as kids. Candy canes crafts have come a long way since then, and I’m sharing 10 of my favorite crafts and décor ideas with you. How do YOU like to craft with these Christmastime treats?

Whether you’ve started decorating already, or want to wait until Thanksgiving weekend, or put it off until December, here are some of my favorite Christmas décor ideas. Enjoy!

easy & adorable snowman candy bars

Over the weekend, I needed a crafty quick-fix-a project that wasn’t hard, didn’t take long, and used items I already had on hand. I went back through my Pinterest page, and noticed some quick and easy snowman candy bars via Martha Stewart, and I knew I had my answer.

All you need are some store-bought candy bars, craft paint, paper, and bakers twine (or ribbon). These were, as you can probably tell, a cinch to make. They were so simple, I took all of one photo of the process…

The paper I used? Yep. Plain printer paper. I was able to get two bars wrapped per 8.5″x11″ sheet. After they were wrapped, I just added the eyes, nose (I used a Sharpie, but paint would’ve worked as well), and twine.

Don’t want to use candy? I can see this working with boxes of crayons, colored pencils or packages of stickers as well! I imagine a walk around the dollar store would yield even more inexpensive ideas. What a FUN way to get your little one involved in wrapping gifts; I think we’ll be making these for my preschooler’s classmates this year!

Thanks for reading!
