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.
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???
