Yarn Candy Cane
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

A neat twist on a classic, these canes are virtually indestructible (and they make excellent gifts).

What you'll need

  • 2 skeins of DMC Pearl Cotton, one red and one white
  • Scissors
  • Red pipe cleaners
  • 1/2" to 5/8" ribbon
Helpful Tip:

These canes were created with fine DMC Pearl Cotton, but younger kids may have an easier time with chenille yarn or cord.

How to make it

  1. Open a skein of cotton and snip the loop at each end so you have two bunches; repeat with the other skein. Then take one red bunch and one white bunch and tie them together into a single knot around the end of a pipe cleaner.

  2. Yarn Candy Cane - Step 2

    To make the stripes, twist the two colors around the pipe cleaner and knot the ends together around the other end. Trim the cotton at both ends and trim the pipe cleaner if need be.

  3. Bend into a candy cane shape and adorn with a ribbon bow.
