Easy Christmas Decorations to make with kids

Fimo Candy Cane Christmas Decorations

Don’t laugh but I’ve been doing a bit of ‘pseudo’ Christmas crafting so I thought I’d share.   Growing up in Canada we always added edible Candy Canes to our Christmas trees when decorating.  I know you can get them here in the UK, but on occasion I’ve got caught out leaving it too late or when I retrieved them from the loft they were broken.

Plus, I was also looking for something to entertain my daughter on a Sunday afternoon.

Easy Christmas Decorations for Kids

They really are as easy as they look


Use 2 or 3 different colours (red, white or green) of Fimo.  Soften the Fimo in your hands then roll out a long snake of each colour.  Try to keep them the same diamter.  Then simple twist them together.  Once you have twisted them into one multi-coloured snake, roll them gently on a flat surface like a table or cutting board to smooth them out a bit.  You could trim the ends if you like.

Bend them into a candy cane shape, place on a baking tray and cook in a pre-heated oven (120 C) for 30 minutes.  Let cool.

If I get time I hope to varnish them.

What do you reckon???
