Christmas Door Hanging {CCC}

Hello I{heart}naptime readers! We are so thrilled to be posting on Jamielyn’s amazing blog!
We are Mallory and Savannah from Classy Clutter.  We have both known Jamielyn since high school (go Toros!) so we are super excited to be bloggy friends too :) Isn’t Jamielyn amazing!?
We are so excited to be back for Crazy Christmas Crafters because we sure are CRAZY Christmas Crafters!
Today we are going to teach you how to make an adorable Candy Cane Door hanging… a little twist on your traditional door wreath. Over at Classy Clutter, we’re crazy about feathers, glitter, bling and all things GLAM! Since our favorite holiday is approaching, we’d better get started on the Christmas decor!
Let’s get started!
{ Christmas Candy Cane Door Hanging }
You will need:

4 feather boas (2 red, 2 white)
Wire or a wire hanger
straight pins
3/4 inch foam pipe insulation (available in the plumbing department)
embellishments of your choice
Straighten out your wire (hanger) and feed it through the foam insulation. This will allow you to shape the foam into the cane shape.
Feed one end of the feather boa into the foam and begin wrapping and pinning. Alternate red and white boas until you’ve got a candy cane look and your foam is completely covered.
Use straight pins to secure feather boa to the foam candy cane form.
Once you’ve got it all wrapped up and pinned in place, embellish however you want to jazz it up a bit!  Use straight pins or hot glue to attach ribbon, ornaments, flowers or whatever you like!
What do you think!? I am soooo ready for Christmas!!! What are you hanging on your front door?
Hope you enjoyed this little project! Head over to our blog and let us know you stopped by from Crazy Christmas Crafters @ Iheartnaptime!  Thanks again Jamielyn for having us! :)

    This is so fab, love the candy cane as a wreath idea! I don’t know I could persuade the hubby to have a feather boa on the door, but might try yarn instead! Thanks for sharing such a great idea!

    Love the idea, but how do you get the hanger to bend? Did you cut the hanger open, or leave it as is? I can’t get the bend to stay!

    Thanks for your help!
