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.

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.
<p>I am so gonna do this! Thanks for sharing!</p>
That is adorable! I can't remember the last time I used one of those triangle beads!
Thanks! Yeah same here! This was the first time I was using them in years.
