Candy Cane Candle

So today I'm gonna be showing you a cute little holiday craft that's super simple to make and will add a festive touch wherever you put it! It's a Candy Cane Candle!

All you need are some candy canes...any color or flavor, a candle that matches your candy canes, and a hot glue gun.

Next...take all the plastic off your candy canes, and start gluing the candy canes to your candle with the hook part facing out!

 Voila! Like I said, super simple and totally festive! Plus, when you burn your candle it will smell a tad like peppermint...if you got an unscented candle and peppermint candy canes, of course.

Okay, be sure to visit the next blog in the hop...Baby's Indulgence

  1. Good way to use candy canes, since I don't like eating them! Thanks for the idea!

  2. I'm with you Anna! I'd rather use them to decorate with.

  3. This would make a nice hostess gift! Awesome idea!

  4. This is an awesome idea! I'm actually thinking I want to make some with all of the different candy canes I can find for Christmas decor on my table... I don't like to eat them either.

  5. Nice stuff.

    I have a giveaway posted on my blog - a gift card sponsored by CSN Stores. Please do come over and enter

  6. Yep decorating with candy canes is the way to go!! WAy better than eating them :)

  7. I hate candy canes so this is a good way to use them!

  8. It's so funny, but it seems that the consensus is a dislike for candy canes! At least they make for pretty decorations!

  9. I wish I knew how to do that when I was still teaching! I would always get so many candy canes but never know what to do with them all!

  10. Wow - what a great gift idea! thankyou!

  11. CUTE!! I bet this would with well with those circle peppermint candies too!! Awesome idea. Thanks!!
