Candy Cane Pipe Cleaner Ornaments
Gather your materials. You'll need:
- Pipe cleaners - a red one and a white one
- Scissors or pliers for cutting
Twist the two pipe cleaners together.
Continue until the two pipe cleaners for one long spiral.
Cut the spiral into shorter lengths. 4" (10 cm) is a good length to make a candy cane.
Bend the spirals into candy cane shapes.
As a variation, you can make candy cane hearts.

First up is this incredible woodland scene. I think the deer with its antlers is especially neat.
These pipe cleaner animals are actually finger puppets. How sweet!
Do aliens count as animals? I'm not sure, but these are very cool. These are by the same person as the previous photo, and once again they're also finger puppets.
