|Jute Wrapped Candy Cane Ornament|
Did you ever buy something and had no idea what you were going to do with it. Well, that is what happened to me before Thanksgiving.
I went to a yard sale and found this bag of jute "curls". Not sure what they were used for, maybe doll hair.
Anyway, I kept thinking that I could do something with this curly jute, so I bought the bag. The price was right since it was only 50 cents.
With the holidays keeping me busy, I forgot about the jute bag. Then today I was cleaning up my workroom and found the bag. I also found some Christmas pipe cleaners. I thought why not make candy canes.

Then I took the curly jute and wrapped it around the pipe cleaner. When I was finished, I cut the jute at both ends of the candy cane and added some hot glue to hold the jute in place and finish it off. These Christmas pipe cleaners had pieces of glitter on them so when I applied the jute, some of the glitter showed through making it look even more festive.
After the jute was secure, I added some decorative items to the candy cane.

They turned out great and look cute on the tree.

I must admit, I still have "loads" of curly jute left over. What else can I use it for?
I linked up to The Shabby Creek Link Party. There are always great ideas flowing.
