DIY: Yarn Candy Cane Ornaments

At City Cradle Design learn how to
first make the Yarn Balls


You’ll Need:
- 2″ styrofoam balls
- yarn in your favorite colors
- mini candy canes
- hot glue gun

1. Insert 5 mini candy canes in a circle around the ball. Try to space them out somewhat evenly, but it doesn’t need to be perfect!

2. One at a time, remove each candy cane from it’s styrofoam hole, add a little hot glue to the hole, then stick the candy cane back in… this will ensure that the candy canes stay put.

3. Start wrapping yarn randomly around the ball, weaving in between the candy canes until the entire ball is covered. Trim the yarn and secure the end with a small dab of hot glue.

That’s it! Add a ribbon loop if you want to use these as hanging ornaments. You can also try this idea with regular sized candy canes and 4″ styrofoam balls to create GIANT ornaments!
