Merry Christmas to everyone!

Here is how I decided to use my candy cane dresden kaleidoscopes.
             I am making them into tree ornaments.

You can find the directions for making a dresden kaleidoscope in my previous posts.  You will need a smaller template however. I will be happy to send you one if you send me an email @

after you make the dresden k then add a hanger (ribbon) and just back it like a quilt and then sew around the raw edge with the stitch of your choice. I like the herringbone stitch or a buttonhole stitch. the tighter your stitch the better it covers the edge. I didn't use any batting. tho you could if you like the look.

Then I spray it with sizing really well on both sides and iron it flat. let it dry and it will hang well.
