Whimsical Candy Cane Sewing Pattern

Peppermint is the number one preferred smell for our holidays.  My husband LOVES peppermint.

He has it for tea.  For treats.  In his cocoa.  On our tree.  He loves his peppermint.

    Now, why does this matter?

    Every year we have candy canes.  They are fun to eat and also decorate with.  But they don't stay for decorations long...because he eats them...all.

    Now, he can't eat them.  Or at least this cute little candy cane craft.  It won't be a tasty treat but it will be a cute decoration.

    Once you've got your cute little candy canes, pair them with a fun Mini Stocking.  Now you have a great decoration for your tiered tray or fireplace.
