One of my favorite Christmas movies is "Elf". It's just plain fun! So if you ever find the need to pass through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, you can make your own!
Start by cutting 1" or so lengths of Whisker Graphic's Divine Twine. I used Cherry (red & white), Holiday (green & red) and Peppermint (pink & red).
Then, get out your good old white glue. I poured a small amount into a cup and dipped my fingers right in!
Pull a cut length of the twine through your fingers, and lay it on the waxed paper to dry for just a few seconds.
Using a small dowel or the "wrong"end of a small paintbrush, curl one end of the twine half way around it.
Then let dry completely. When they are dry, peel them up and cut off any stray "hair" from both ends, plus any extra dried glue.
They are pretty quick to make--it took me about 20 minutes to make 4 dozen! For more clever ideas using Divine Twine, check out their blog HERE!
