I remember making candy cane ornaments like these YEARS ago in Sunday school. I had a nice time reliving those memories with my daughter yesterday.
We used 1 inch pom poms, tacky glue, recycled cardboard from soda and cereal boxes, a hole punch and a piece of ribbon for hanging (and for a bow on the wreath). After the shapes are cut I would punch the hole for hanging and add the ribbon for hanging before adding the pom poms. It will be more difficult later. If you would like to use the shapes we used you may download them here.
I cut out the shapes for my daughter and we applied lots of glue. She then carefully placed each pom pom on the cardboard. When she was finished I sat a dinner plate on top for a few minutes to get the edges of the pom poms glued to the cardboard.
She was so proud when she hung them on the Christmas tree last night!
