Candy Cane Holder

Happy Friday, everyone! I'm glad it is Friday even though it is gloomy outside. I have been busy crocheting a lot of little hats for little girls and now I'm crocheting for adults too. I'll be crocheting for my nieces for Christmas when I'm done with all the orders.

Here is a Christmas version of the cutlery holder I made for the fall for my church Nursery Meeting. You can view it here.

I tied candy canes with Baker's twine put them inside the pocket but you can put anything you want in this holder. I got this twine from a good friend a couple of years ago and never know what to do with it until now. I punched a hole at the top so that I can hang it on a Christmas tree.
I did the ruffling look on the ribbon. I used the taffeta ribbon, fray one end, take a strand of thread and pull to ruffle it. I didn't realized I used the colours of the American flag to make this holder until I finished the project. lol

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Happy Stamping!

Really cute project! Thanks for sharing the template with us. I have some of that baker's twine too and might decorate some candy sticks we always have for the holidays to keep on hand for quick little gifts. Hope your weekend is super!
