Christmas in July | Button DIY Candy Cane Ornaments

Hi, it’s Connie here with the Buttons Galore & More design team. We are celebrating Christmas in July, with handcrafted ornament ideas to create with the family.  Looking for a DIY Christmas ornament that is easy for little hands to make? These DIY candy cane ornaments with big red, green and white buttons are easy for little hands to pick up and glue down.

These DIY Christmas ornaments are fast and are very kid friendly to create!

Instructions:

  1. Create a pattern by drawing a candy cane on chipboard and cutting it out.
  2. Punch a small hole, in the top of the candy cane, and place twine through for the hanger.
  3. Wrap the candy cane with jute string, adhering to the top of the candy cane and the bottom. Adhere big buttons to the wrapped candy cane with a strong wet glue. Let dry. Add embellishments, if desired, to complete the ornaments.

DIY candy cane ornamentsYou may be familiar with our color mixes of flat buttons, but did you know that Buttons Galore & More also makes the cutest 3D buttons? Today, I’m using some called the Holiday Fun collection, that include snowmen, Christmas trees, stars, deer, and a cat and dog, just to name a few. They are so fun, just like their name! I snipped the shanks off and added these cute “Holiday Fun” buttons to the candy cane ornaments. Paper holly leaves are tucked in behind the “Holiday Fun” buttons.

These ornaments are great for gift exchanges and teacher gifts. Decorating a gift bag is another way to use these candy cane ornaments!

    Can these be made into kits to be sold at a local craft fair? Not my idea so I don’t want to steal it :) I think it would be a favorite though! Credit would be given to this website and Connie!
