Candy canes also cut a good figure when arranged as a garland and bring color and mood into play. You can simply hang the treats loosely or tie them together to form different figures. You can create an attractive garland that impresses with great texture using small white and red felt pompoms. Glue alternating red and white pompoms to create a candy cane. To create the typical curve, you should glue the felt pompoms together at a slight angle at this point. Finally, you need to thread the yarn into the needle and thread each candy cane through the top pompom.
