Sparkly Pipe Cleaners As Christmas Decorations

Here is another fun holiday crafting idea. Simply take sparkly pipe cleaners and twist these into candy cane shapes. These are simple and cheap decorations that can be placed on the Christmas tree. Do not have a Christmas tree? These candy canes also look festive hanging off a hook on the wall. Are you into handmade cards? Then paste some of these adorable candy canes on cards that you are making for family and friends. Take a look at the video below to see how different sparkly candy canes can be fashioned. Thicker canes can be created by using six or more pipe cleaners, and thinner ones are fashioned by simply using two pipe cleaners.
