12 Days of Christmas: Candy Cane Place-card Holder with a Bow

12 Days of Christmas: Candy Cane Place-card Holder with a Bow

On the first day of Christmas we take a candy cane, we add a cute bow, and a lovely name tag…🎶🎵

This is how you make an adorable holiday place card holder. Add this to any table setting to bring some Christmas flair to your family dinner!

Here is a list of supplies I used:

Candy canes

Hot Glue Gun

Hot Glue Sticks

Size G-4.25mm Crochet Hook

Scissors

Lion Brand Yarn Vanna’s Choice

Paper for the Name Tag

 

 

To start, I crocheted a bow.

Pattern for this small bow is as follows:

Ch 30

SC in 1st chain to form a loop and continue to SC around in each Ch, Work in continuous rounds working in the BLO for 6 rounds.
Fasten off with a very long tail.

Follow along with this tutorial to learn how to make a bow:

 

You can make your bow any size, but I only chained 30 at the beginning for the foundation row.

 

I used the long strand of yarn that I cut at the end to wrap around the center of the bow to cinch it in.

 

Then I took hot glue and glued the THREE candy canes together so they would stand up.

 

Once they were dried and attached, I hot glued on the bow.

 

I added a place card with the name written fancy. You can add this to your table setting for an extra detail to your holiday decor!

Enjoy!!

 

 

 

I did this project in just a few minutes. It was sooooo easy!!
