Aren't these little candy cane snowmen darling? It's so easy to make with just a few supplies, making it a great classroom project!

What you'll need

  • Wrapped candy cane
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Felt glue or hot glue gun
  • Black marker
  • 6" ribbon or yarn
Helpful Tip:

1. You can add a brim to the hat by rolling the felt up. 2. Hang your candy cane snowman on the Christmas tree! 3. Felt is inexpensive, so add to your stock a few sheets at a time each time you hit the discount department store.

How to make it

  1. Cut a piece of felt about 2" wide and 5" long. Using the long stem of the wrapped candy cane as a guide, glue a sleeve of felt around the candy cane. You want to create a felt tube that the candy cane with slide through.

  2. Slide the felt tube up the length of the candy cane and onto the curve, leaving most of the straight part exposed.

  3. Feel the felt and find where the curve in the candy cane ends. Tie a piece of ribbon or yarn around the felt just after the end of the candy cane's curve.

  4. Fringe the end of the felt below the ribbon by making long slits with your scissors. Trim the excess for the hat's pom-pom.

  5. Cut a small triangle from orange felt and glue to the straight part of the candy cane about ½" below the felt of the hat.

  6. Use a black marker to draw on two eyes and a mouth.

  7. Cut a piece of felt about ¾" x 5". Tie around the candy cane as a scarf, and fringe the ends.
