Go DIY this Christmas-Lawrence School

Bored of the same cards, decorations and goodies that throng the stores each year around Christmas? Want to keep the kid productively occupied during the vacations? Read on find out how:

There is no better way to add some personal touch than to be unique. Handmade cards, decorations that are made at home from scratch do need the time and effort but the result can be totally worth it. What's more the kids would love all the gluing and pasting and at the same time get something done constructively.

There are plenty of DIY online tutorials for easy to make Christmas crafts. We are sharing one such craft with you here:

Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages
A neat twist on a classic, these canes are virtually indestructible (and they make excellent gifts).

What you'll need

  • 2 skeins of DMC Pearl Cotton, one red and one white
  • Scissors
  • Red pipe cleaners
  • 1/2" to 5/8" ribbon
Helpful Tip: These canes were created with fine DMC Pearl Cotton, but younger kids may have an easier time with chenille yarn or cord.

How to make it

  1. Open a skein of cotton and snip the loop at each end so you have two bunches; repeat with the other skein. Then take one red bunch and one white bunch and tie them together into a single knot around the end of a pipe cleaner.
  2. Yarn Candy Cane - Step 2To make the stripes, twist the two colors around the pipe cleaner and knot the ends together around the other end. Trim the cotton at both ends and trim the pipe cleaner if need be.
  3. Bend into a candy cane shape and adorn with a ribbon bow.
