I decided to do a few ornament Do-It-Yourself pieces to spread the holiday fun. Most of the projects I will be show casing here this week are all kid friendly! Since 90% of our family's original ornaments were made by us kids I know first hand how fun making them can be (I even had fun recreating them here!) and they promise to make for a great family project.

First up on my Ornament DIY Week is the Candy Cane! This is a super simple concept and extremely cheap. You can probably even get all the supplies you need at the Dollar Store. Nearly every craft store carries the supplies, even Walmart.

Supplies:
1. Pipe Cleaners
2. Triangle Beads
3. Scissors
4. Lace (1/2 in wide, with eyelets-aka holes in the center part)

Step 1:

Step One:
Cut your pipe cleaner to about 5 1/2 inches long. You can go longer if you want a larger cane, but 5 1/2 is the smallest I would recommend with the size of the beads. Anything smaller doesn’t look right.
