Here is a really easy holiday embroidery project - couched candy canes!
I created these with DMC embroidery thread using all six strands.
If you need to learn the couching stitch, check out this great video tutorial from Needle n Thread.
I free hand drew little canes with a water soluble pen.
I started with red as the foundation thread and white as my working thread - or my "stripes" of the candy cane.
Continue couching white stripes and then bring your red thread through the fabric to finish the cane.
My second candy cane is white with red stripes.
I drew some more - but then decided on stopping at three candy canes :)
I rinsed the ink off my fabric and let dry.
To show you how small these candy canes are - here is a dime for size comparison.
