  • How to make a candy cane ornament. Candy Cane Ornament - Step 1
    Step 1

    To get the correct shape, I used a heart-shaped pegboard. Start by placing down some white hama beads, two, then a space, two, then a space, etc. etc. working round the curve.

    Because of the shape, you may have to have some sections with only one white bead, because the cane twists. Just make sure it looks nice.
