  2. You can choose to decorate your candy cane heart with a bow or bells. Use glue to attach the bow or the bells. Then thread string (using a needle) through the bow or in the back of the bells so that you can hang it from your tree.
  3. These hearts are nice because you can hang them right on the tree or attach them to presents.

Reindeer

What you need:

What you do:

  1. Take a pipe cleaner and cut it in half. Using one of the halves, visually find the centre and wrap it around the curved part of the candy cane. Twist to secure the antlers and then take each end of the pipe cleaner and shape them into antlers. To make curly antlers twist the pipe cleaner around a pencil.
