Chenille Stem Candy Cane Ornaments
These ornaments are quick, easy and inexpensive to make. Chenille stems are often still called "pipe cleaners," but are fuzzier and more colorful.
What you will need :
Regular red and white stems and/or metallic red and silver stems. You will need one red stem and one white or silver stem for each ornament.
The wire ends of chenille stems can be sharp. To protect your fingers, turn each wire end in onto itself and clamp down with pliers.
Fold each chenille stem in half and pinch the folded end.
Holding a red chenille stem and a white/silver chenille stem together at their folded ends, twist the stems together.
Bend one end of the twisted chenille stems into a shepherd's crook shape.
