26 Candy Cane Crafts

Now that Halloween is over we are starting on our holiday crafts.  Did you know there are only (drum roll please)... 53 days left until Christmas !?!

My children came up with the bright idea to make it through this list of 26 Candy Cane Crafts wonderfully written by "About Family Crafts".

We were just tickled to see that our Candy Cane Reindeer Craft (shown above) is #16 on the list!    All the crafts on the list are so delicious my kids couldn't make up their minds and that's when they decided to go for them all.  I love the simplicity of rope crafts so my personal favourite is # 19. Twine Candy Canes.

Please share your finished projects.  We would love to see them!

Free Slipper Boots Crochet Pattern

Adorable Slipper Boots (Crochet)

My first crochet slipper boots!  

Here is the free pattern by Bernat to these super adorable slipper boots:

Free Slipper Boot Pattern

This was the most challenging project I have done so far and although I pulled a lot of hair out and used a few choice words I must say I feel pretty proud of myself. 

It's all worth it :)

Free Strawberry Crochet Dish Cloth Pattern

Strawberry Crochet Dishcloth

On first impression this pattern was a funny looking strawberry to me but now it has become a favorite in our home.  The design is super easy to hold and the little green stem doubles up as a scrubber.

We had a lot of country red Bernat yarn left over from our apple crochet dish cloths and wanted to try something new and different.

The strawberry pattern is free from Bernat. This is the link:

It's the Berries Crochet Dishcloth Pattern Here

The best part of this pattern is there are no seed embellishments to add,  I'm thinking of experimenting with hot pink and green yarn next.
