Step 1: Inspiration and Material Gathering
There is an episode where Mr. Candy Cane is red and pink, but most episodes show him as two shades of green. I like green. Decision made. I couldn't find the lighter shade of green so I used white instead.
The materials were super cheap. The felt I bought came in sheets that were a little bigger than standard paper, 9x12 if I remember right. I got them from Joann's Craft store for I think $0.35 US a sheet, but I know you can get them even cheaper elsewhere. The hot glue and thread I already had so I really only spent $3.15 on all nine sheets. If you don't have a glue gun you can buy one for less than $5 with a couple sticks of glue in the pack, use tacky glue or even Elmer's glue, or forgo the glue altogether if you wish.

3 x green apple felt
1 x walnut brown felt
1 x tan felt
1 x black felt
Various thread colors. I used green, brown and white, but it would have looked okay if I had only used white or maybe black threads.
