"Candy Cane Heart Ornament"

Submitted by Lisa Sett of Thousand oaks, CA

Materials:

2 candy canes for each heart
(1 box will make 6 hearts)

BE CREATIVE. USE WHAT YOU HAVE BEFORE YOU BUY ;)

5" long piece of ribbon (curling ribbon works great)

1 small decoration for top of heart such as; an old button, bow, curly ribbon, lace, silk flower, berries, dried rose, glitter, even a wrapped peppermint hard candy

low temp glue gun

Directions:

Lay everything out on a clean, flat surface. Plug in your glue gun, while it warms up lay the candy out to see how best they fit. Use a small dab of glue at the bottom of the canes then glue the top where they meet. Allow to dry, add hanging ribbon and glue final touches.

Use as: ornaments, gift tags, napkin rings in center of each plate or personalized take home gifts for your guests.

Tip: No one will eat these they are too pretty....so what's wrong with buying the candy now at 75 to 90% off.
