Candy Cane Stem
- Start by prepping your Snowman Base by cutting off and removing the snowman’s scarf, as well as the piece of pine from the snowman’s hat.
- Lay your lollipop across the snowman, to begin building a collage of pieces.
- Break down the candy cane into two pieces, one single piece and one piece with 2 swirls. Uncurl the single piece and reroll it into a candy shape, stopping half way and cutting off the excess. Do the same with the second piece.
- Place your candy shapes on the hat, stacking them and gluing them on.
- Trim the excess stem off the other piece of the candy cane stem, and tuck it behind the lollipop stem.
- When you have decided where your stems will go, grab your awl and poke 2 holes in the snowman base, one on either side of the stems.
- Thread the cable tie through the first hole, then back up through the second.
- Arrange your picks on the snowman, then close the cable tie around the stems.
- Glue your candies to the snowman, and your beautiful door hanger is finished!
TIPS AND TRICKS
- Change out the colors or elements to make the centerpiece your own. Add a different bow or stems. Use different greenery and florals. The best part of this centerpiece is that it’s so easily customizable!
- I love my glue skillet. I just melt hot glue sticks in a regular kitchen skillet, which allows me to just easily dip my stems into the glue rather than trying to get my glue where I need it with a glue gun.
- I added glue to some of my stems as I placed them into my centerpiece, but you can absolutely do a dry run. Just stick your stems into your centerpiece and you’re able to move them around until you’re happy with their placement.
