Directions for Making Twine Wrapped Candy Cane Ornaments:

1.  Begin by attaching Continuous Glue Line to the plastic wrapped candy cane.   Place the Glue Line in the center on one side of the candy cane and then go around to the other side.  Make sure you attach glue line all the way around (including the top and bottom) of the candy cane.  This will allow you to cover the ends with twine so no part of the candy cane shows.

2.  Attach twine to the end of the candy cane and wrap upwards.  Make sure to secure the end of the twine to the adhesive at the bottom of the candy cane so the end is completely covered with twine.  If you would like, you can use a Low Temp Glue Gun to attach the twine to the end.

4.  Now it’s time to add a few embellishments!  Easily add a Red Velvet Bow with the gold metallic chenille stem twist (already assembled on the bow).  No adhesive necessary.  Just twist the chenille stem around the candy cane.

5.  For a different look, attach a large craft button with a Glue Dot instead of the velvet bow.  We threaded a little twine through the 4 button holes for a finished look.  Or attach a Small Foam Star with a Mini Button in the center to the candy cane with Glue Dots.
