Candy Cane Christmas Tree DIY

As I was shopping for my craft supplies last weekend I spotted a Candy Cane Christmas tree on one of their shelves. I simply fell in love. It was a bit pricey so I only took a picture. My plan was to make my own but budget friendly Christmas DIY. I know I could do it. My plan was to make even a bigger one that they offered. Here is a picture that I took at the store. Don’t you just want to lick it …ha ha ha . Let’s get some ribbon so we can start our Christmas craft! I hope it will be also kids friendly Christmas craft

Choosing a right ribbon wasn’t easy … have to admit that … because they have so much to choose from! All I wanted was 1.5 inch wide ribbon fairly thick with candy cane stripes on it.

As you can see ribbon i chose isn’t that typical candy cane pattern but I was determined to make it work simply because it was only $3 a spooll!


Let’s begin making our Candy Cane Ribbon Christmas craft


  • Prepare your ribbon. Loop your ribbon ( each loop around 3 inches) for a quick assembly later as it shown on the picture below

  • cut your loop only on one side only. You will end up with around 6 inch long strips

  • fold your each strip into tear like shape as it is shown below

  • Glue your first row of looped ribbon lower then your loop height is. I like mine to spread on the surface when Candy Cane Christmas tree is finished .

Notice how bottom row of our ribbon loops are spreading wide.

It really didn’t take long to make that tree. Maybe 15 min all together with all that strips cutting.


Ta- Daa!!!!! It is done! I am so pleased with the way it turned out! Perfect budget friendly Christmas DIY What do you think? Does it look close to a original from Michaels?
