Candy Striped Tree

This year I had to change my decorations because I’m recovering from surgery so imagination was called upon.

I love holiday decorating and wanted it to be cute without being able to get my things out of the attic.

I got my inspiration from the candy liners I had.

So, a candy stripped tree it is!

For the garland I made a simple single stitch garland in dark red and white separately.

I took into consideration the diameter of the tree and it could have been a bit longer to allow more draping. But here it’s is about 30’ long.

My inspiration was these candy or cupcake liners. How cute are these?!

A stripped tree was easy to do,

with what I had on hand.

Draping the yarn garland as I wanted brought he tree to life.

My disaappointment from my beloved decorations not being out turned into excitement of how this was turning out!

Add a few candy canes and WALLAH!!

I did manage to have one decoration mom sent me.

So, necessity is the mother of invention and this has made me very happy and accomplished even with my injury’s limitations.
