To create the candy cane ornament, you only need to create two coils in different colors. Weave the ends of each coil and twist them around each other to create the candy cane.
If you prefer, you can use a bobby pin or a pipe cleaner to make the curved form of the iconic candy cane. First you have to straighten out the wire then poke it through the whole candy cane coil and create the curve. After you’re satisfied with the shape of your candy cane, you can adjust the coils to get your desired look.
However, if a bobby pin or a pipe cleaner is not available, you can instead use one of the yarn colors to create the curve. Slightly bend the twisted coil from the top and using one of the yarn, pull the strands to create a knot for the hanging loop.
A little hair spray can help if you want to stiffen the candy cane ornament.
