A Candy Cane Snowflake Ornament That’s Oh So Festive & Easy To Make

Candy canes & snowflakes go hand in hand at Christmas time. This festive ornament is a fast & easy to DIY which would be fun to do with kids.

Candy canes & snowflakes come together to create a jolly ornament for your Christmas tree.

This candy cane snowflake how to comes hot on the heels of the shimmering Pom Pom Ornament and is another one of the  ornaments you’ll find in our recently published DIY Christmas decorating book, Ornaments To Make Your Christmas Sparkle.  All of the 25 ornaments are easy to make, full of sparkle and will be a welcome addition to your Christmas tree. Let’s not waste any more precious holiday crafting time, on to the candy cane snowflake.

At the holidays, snowflakes are available in so many sizes, patterns and colors.  I love using them for all kinds of crafting projects because they’re super inexpensive and can be dressed up in so many ways. No need to break the bank – they’re the ultimate in dollar store glam!


These chenille candy canes were too small to be used individually on a large tree but put them onto a snowflake and shazam, they turn into a festive jewel for your tree. The “gem” that adorns the middle is acrylic and was purchased at my local arts and crafts store for all of 5 cents. I think it makes this jazzy Christmas ornament.

Be sure to watch the short video below because that’s where you’ll see me at my work table showing how to make this ornament. By the way, these ornaments are really fun and easy for kids to make too.  Just be sure to keep them away from the hot glue pan – a cool melt glue gun is a much safer idea.


There is one more ornament creating how to coming your way very soon. They’re also found in our book along with techniques and basic supplies you’ll need as well as a resources section so you can locate everything. Next up is a traditional holly berry vine wreath. Oh, there are some links for you below the video to some other holiday creating posts and videos you might enjoy.

Happy holidays, Happy creating!
