Last year, in the sales after Christmas, I was lucky enough to get my little mitts on some ornament trees for a great price. They were whisked straight into storage and forgotten about until last week. I used one to hang my 12 days of Christmas ornaments and place it on the mantle, The other I turned into a this;
To tidy up the ends of the candy canes I taped up any loose wrappers, and then used bakers twine to attach the candy canes to the ornament tree. It was a little tedious, but ask Marie and she’ll tell you how much I love tiny tedious tasks. As I worked my way down, some of the canes needed to be trimmed. In all, I believe I used around 8 dozen candy canes.
