Fashioned from colorful fabrics, this sweet Christmas icon will last season after season.
One at a time, lay each fabric strip, printed side down, on a waxed paper-covered surface and use a paintbrush to coat it with a thin layer of glue. Place a pipe cleaner along one long edge.
Roll the fabric around it as tightly as possible. Smooth down the outer edge.
Pinch together the tops of the 3 wrapped pipe cleaners. Tightly twist them into a spiral and bend the top into a candy cane shape.
Set the cane in a short drinking glass to dry (it can take several hours, depending on the humidity). Then neaten the ends by trimming them with wire cutters, if needed.
