Rickrack Candy Cane Craft

Here's a fun activity, I found in Martha Stewart Living Magazine's Holiday Handbook.

The cute candy cane is made with red and white rickrack and can be used on a homemade holiday card or smaller versions can be used on homemade gift tags.

Materials for Holiday Card
  • red rickrack
  • white rickrack
  • glue
  • cardstock or heavy paper (your choice of color)
  • scissors

  • Cut a rectangle from cardstock and fold in half.
  • Cut 2 pieces of rickrack the same size (1 red + 1 white).
  • Twist the 2 strands together to make one striped piece.
  • Glue the new striped piece on the front of the card in the shape of a candy cane.
  • Allow time for the glue to dry.
  • Write a holiday greeting inside the card!
