Candy Cane Card Holder

Christmas is my favorite holiday and this year I was fortunate enough to take part in a wonderful charity event, The Lane's First Annual Claus for a Cause which benefited The Dragonfly Foundation.  The event was a HUGE success and all the kids, both young in age and young at heart, had a great time.  Simply Events was asked to be the official party planners of this event and without hesitation, we said yes! 

We were so excited to help with all of the logistical coordination needed in preparation of the event as well as on the day of the event.  Over the next few weeks, we will sharing with you some of the details of this party! Up first, the candy cane card holders!

From start to finish, these candy cane card holders took approximately 25 minutes to make (I made five total) - maybe a bit longer since the candy canes would break every now & then! But they were well worth our efforts and everyone was raving about how cute and creative they were!

Supplies needed: for one candy cane card holder
  • Hot glue gun
  • 3 candy canes
    • You can use the regular size or the mini candy canes.
-------Directions-------
  1. Take your hot glue gun and place a line of glue on the inside of one of the candy canes.
  2. Then quickly line up the other candy cane at the appropriate angle and hold together for about 30 seconds.
  3. Take your hot glue gun and place a line of glue on the back of the two candy canes you just glued together.
  4. Then quickly place your third candy cane in that line of glue. 
    • This third candy cane is what will allow for your card holder to stand on its own. 
  5. Hold this candy cane in place for another 30 seconds to ensure that it is set. 
  6. Voila!! You have candy cane card holder! 
Super simple & super cute!
