Candy Cane Pin
Christmas Arts and Crafts
This candy cane pin is a cute
Christmas craft that can be
made using only a few materials. You will need tri-beads, a
pipe cleaner, and some lace ribbon. These are fun to put
together and are easy to make in quantity, since the materials are very
inexpensive since you can buy the beads in multi-packs. This
pin will look festive on your winter coat or Christmas sweater, or try
selling them at your next Christmas bazaar!
Needed for this Christmas Arts and Crafts Project:
- 5 inch red pipe cleaner
- red tri-beads
- green tri-beads
- 11.5 inch of lace ribbon, about 3/4 inch
wide (see photo below to see what type to buy)
- small length of ribbon for bow (optional)
- holly berries for adornment (optional)
1. Begin the candy cane pin by cutting the red pipe cleaner
to six inches. The lace ribbon you will need works best if
there are holes in the ribbon for threading, as shown below.
2. Begin by threading on a red tri-bead. Then,
thread the ribbon on to the pipe cleaner, using one of the lacey
"holes" to thread it on. Begin at the very end of the ribbon,
and cut off any excess ribbon.
4. Bend the pipe cleaner into the shape of a candy cane, as
5. Secure the ends of the pipe cleaner by wrapping and
twisting each end securely around the last tri-bead.
If desired, add a bow for additional decoration. To
imitate the look shown here, you will need a small length of ribbon
tied into a bow, a small length of wire, and some artificial holly
Wrap the wire around the bow, then wrap the berries around
the center of the bow. Use the wire to wrap the adornment
securely to the pin. Finish by gluing a pin backing to the
candy cane pin, and it is ready to wear.
