yarn candy canes

We’ve had tons of people ask where we got our yarn candy canes to which we reply “Clearance at a store when visiting Utah, boo!”  After spying these cute chunky canes at the Dollar Store, I thought I could recreate the look for less!  We’ve huge into Christmas decor and have shared several posts this season already, you can’t have enough Christmas cheer!  Hope you like these cute yarn candy canes, they’re inexpensive and a breeze to create.

and Friday it’s Your turn – It’s the Christmas Extravaganza Linky Party.
Come share your Christmas décor, recipes and more!

These are too easy to make and require little supplies.  You’ll need:

  • red yarn
  • white yarn
  • decoupage
  • scissors
  • foam brush
  • candy canes from Dollar Tree


  • Apply decoupage to bottom of candy cane, put yarn in middle and hold down with thumb, start encircling the candy cane, it’ll stick easily so keep wrapping.
  • You can get creative with your patterns, for this tutorial, I went about 2 inches up with red, snipped off the red, applied a dot of decoupage and started with white.
  • Finish the top of the cane with more decoupage.  So fast and easy.

  3. I love easy Christmas crafts because they look cutest and I’m lazy with a capital ‘L’. If I start a project that’s too involved, odds are I’ll never finish it. My most successful projects are the ones that I can finish in one sitting. So this is right up my alley. Plus, my yarn stash is getting out of hand.
