That is so cute. My sister and I are planning on making some for her church's Christmas Tea. It touched my heart because my sister is battling cancer as well. The lady that has the blog is fighting a tough battle but is so creative.

Has anyone tried these in the short time since this was posted? Too cute! What glue would you use to adhere the broken candy canes to the ornament?

I just started making them. Made one as a test and it turned out really cute so now I've got 11 more hanging to dry. I didn't even look at the directions - just thought, wow, those look easy and tried it. Not sure if it's in the directions or not but I painted the glue part white before putting the glitter on. I also did not use the plastic ornies since I didn't have any - at least ones I could find lol. I made my own out of clay. The one that is done turned out nice enough that my oldest came home from school and said, "Mom, that is really cute!" so it passed the teenager test lol.

I just used my E6000 to attach them.

I just came home from shopping for this. I gave away my clear glass bulbs last year because they were taking up room & not being used...grrrrr....
Hobby Lobby & JoAnn's did not have the paint, but I bought the last can of brown at Michael's. Out of all the glitter I have there was not one suitable for this. Had the candy canes though! Who knows when I'll get to them...
I hope to see some posted here soon!

When I first looked at it, I thought it was real chocolate haha. It looks like the chocolate they show on the Lindor Chocolates commercials. I will have to try making these!

Tried a smaller size too. Here is step 1. I won't get back to them until I figure out how I am going to prop them up to paint. Wonder how it would look if I put the hanger on & sprayed that too????

Could you use a thick piece of Styrofoam with pencils or wood sticks in it, ornaments upside down, then spray. I hope that made sense.

Yes, but my brain doesn't like the up-side-down painting aspect LOL. I'm still thinking since I can't work on them again 'til the weekend. Thanks!

I just went outside and each ornie had a piece of wire attached to the hanger part and I held onto that and sprayed them and then hung them on the handles of my garbage can and recycling bin to dry lol.

Maybe put the silver hanger (top) back on and wrap a piece of painters tape around it so you don't spray the top. Wear a rubber glove and hold up by hand---outside of course---and then like Vickie says, hang somewhere to dry. Take tape off when you hang it up, before it is dry.

Just a suggestion.

My sister and I started working on these today. I failed to read the directions "exactly" and bought just regular candy canes. I have searched both Hobby Lobby and Michaels. I cannot find plastic candy canes. Frown I'm thinking we may have to substitute. Has anyone else found them? I bought red balls at Big Lots and the paint did not cover them even after 2 coats. It also dripped of them. Weird. My sister bought light blue ones and they were perfect. Go figure. More to follow.

I saw them at our Michael's, and have always found them at the Dollar type stores in past years.

Sooner - just buy some red, white and green clay. I made candy canes out of it and then cut them into pieces to make mine. Was a lot easier than trying to find the plastic ones.
