DIY Ribbon Candy Cane Door Hanger Instructions
- So to start it, we initially ran the ribbon past the end of frame and then all you do is start wrapping your ribbon around the frame.
- Now that the whole frame is wrapped I like to extend the top end a little bit then I added a dap of hot glue between the frame and the ribbon to hold it in place.
- The candy cane is wrapped and is ready to be decorated. To decorate it we’re going to create a bow to attach into the curve of the candy canes neck.
- We’re going to make a single ribbon 3-2-1 bow and then top it off with a few center loops of the 5/8″ ribbon.
- The 3-2-1 bow starts with 3 loops on each side that are 6″ long, then 2 loops at 5.5″ long and then 1 loop at 5″ long. (We have detailed 3-2-1 Bow videos here.) Then come back with your 5/8″ ribbon and add a single loop to fill in the center!
- Attach your Bow to the base, by wrapping your pipe cleaner around the frame and securing with a dab of hot glue. Fluff out the bow and be sure to trim your ribbon tails.
