Liz is located in kyoto, Japan she is a felt maker and craft enthusiasts on “feltcafe”. This is an easy and fast way to make “felt candy canes”, felting around pipe cleaners to create the shape. No previous felting experience is necessary; this would be a lot of fun for older kids. For younger children, you could wrap the wool around the pipe cleaners and/or get them started, and have the kids do the last steps (roll them in soapy water). I think this is one of the easiest ways to make realistic “Candy Canes”! Thanks Liz for sharing.
