These DIY American Girl Candy Canes are fun because you can use them in several different ways!  They can be part of your Hot Cocoa Stand “fixings”, they can be ornaments on the tree, used on your gingerbread house, added on your Christmas wreaths,  or they can used for your Candy Sleighs!  The possibilities are endless and you can make them any flavor you want!  We made several.  My favorite flavor is the all blue candy cane.  Blueberry, blue raspberry, I love the blue ones! What’s your favorite?

Materials Needed:

  1. Pipe Cleaners
  2. Beads

Watch and name each flavor!

      1: Peppermint 2: Strawberry Watermelon 3: Blue Raspberry 4: Mixed Fruit 5: Another Peppermint (?) Am I right?!?!?!?
      Also, this craft is so cute! But, I do wish they would look more twisted rather than just 2 colors alternating stacks. You could also just twist 2 different pipe cleaners together.
      But thanks anyway! I am going to go make these right now!
      Funny Story: I was eating a Peppermint Stick while watching this ?
