Candy Cane Holiday Wreath- This is probably the easiest idea to have your kids do. The styrofoam ring can be found in the craft section/store, yarn and any decorations you like to add. Wrap the yarn and tie off. Use yarn to tie the decorations on also. No gluing necessary. Instead of yarn you could use strips of wrapping paper and tape it around the ring.
I love this little tree! This candy cane topiary from Pizzazzerie is also made from a Styrofoam cone. The cone is covered with Royal Icing and the candy canes are set in the icing, which hardens when it dries. The tree is attached to a candle holder using a floral tube. Check out this tutorial.
Love the simplicity of the candy cane & bow...
