MAYA IN THE MOMENT CRAFT: Candy Cane Heart Picture Ornament

 My mom and I experimented with MELTING candy canes this week and had all kinds of yummy results. Here is the idea I made!

Did you know you can melt the candy canes into hearts by putting them in the oven for a few minutes?

Here is what you need:
You'll also need:

 - cookie sheet
- parchment paper
- oven
- oven mitt

Preheat the oven to 300F.
Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Remove plastic wrapper from each candy cane and set them as hearts on the cookie sheet. Let them heat up for three minutes. always use caution when using the oven, I suggest kids have an adult around to help them.

Remove the tray from the oven. Press the ends together so they set and the joints are secure. Use a steak knife to trim away excess candy cane. You want to have clean edges so it looks nice! Let cool.

 Cut up the Tacky Sticker Sheets into strips and apply to the back of the candy cane - don't forget to add string to hang your ornament!

Set the candy cane on top of the picture. Cut away excess.

 This is what I ended  up with, but I thought they looked BLAH. They needed some sparkle power. I found some glittered cardstock and cut out hearts. I added more Tacky Sticker Sheet adhesive and pressed them to the back of the ornament. Much better!



As a way to say Merry Christmas (and Happy Hanukkah too!), I'm sharing a little song I sang! It's Christmas Waltz and I hope it makes you smile. Have a wonderful, magical, glitter-filled holiday! Click below to watch, I hope you like it!

I do use heat protectant on the lace wigs to ensure there is no heat damage when curling and straightening. Almost have had this hair 2 months and I have experienced no tangling and the human hair wigs has such a great flow. For the price of this hair I recommend it because it's worth the money. I've had no problems at all with this human hair wigs. This is the worst hair ever. Had it in for 2 days had to cut it out because. It she likes a dog. I worked in fast food it was so embarrassing when people laughed at me leaving so much brazilian hair around. I had to cut it out will definitely be returning. I had to pay 80 to get this crap install. What makes it even worst Is that my daughter had it done for Mother day. So much for my mother day gift. I want my money back this is crazy. I change the rating because customer service was awesome and they compensated me for my loss. I can still get my human hair uk redone for Mother day. Thanks again customer service.

I will say, I purchased bundles from this company in the past and I was not as satisfied the hair extensions uk quality however I took a chance based on the previous reviews and I will say, this brazilian hair bundles is very different this hair is amazing. The hair quality is similar to the $300-500 wigs out there. It's not really thick or thin, it's perfect if you want a "believable" look. I personally don't use brazilian hair uk for hairlines and I instead cut the lace completely off and leave an inch or so of my own lace wigs uk out in the front and wear it like a 3/4 wig. My natural hair texture is identical to this hair so it blends perfectly. I purchased 22 inches and it looks even longer which is awesome. I uploaded pics of the lace front part before I cut it off for anyone who wants to see it up close. And also the inside to see the 4 combs and the medium brown lace color. The pics of the human hair uk dry is from straight out of the box before I shampooed. You'll also see the length in the pics of it wet that I uploaded. It's simply beautiful, and I'm a bit of a hair snob so just buy it.
