Fabric candy canes

Sometimes I will display toys around with my Christmas decorations like this adorable little teddy I picked up one day. I found some peppermint colored fabric at the dollar store and thought it would be so cute to add fabric peppermint sticks with this little teddy.

I used a ruler as a template by tracing around it a couple times. Then cut out fabric and sewed it up and stuffed it.

Then I added a bow and some clippings from my garden.

For some even extra detail, sprinkle a little peppermint oil onto your fabric canes so they smell like the real deal.

You can even dress up your toys to go with the season. Add scarfs and Winter hats to everything. When Spring rolls around switch things up by adding anything floral to the same items. Happy decorating everyone.

    1. Thank you, I add scarfs and hats to just about everything for the Winter. If my cat would let me I would make her a little hat and scarf.
