Print out our candy cane printables - large or small, and cut out the squares carefully.

Lay the square face down with the red sides away from you and the white corner towards you.

Starting with the bottom white corner, roll the paper tightly around the pencil. If you are using the large square, you will have to slide the pencil out slightly towards the side as you go.

To hang our candy canes on the tree, we tied a loop of baker's twine and then used a ribbon to attach that to the neck of the candy cane (covering the sticky tape, too).
