You know how you see things on Pinterest and they look so good, but then you make one and it flops? Well I saw a place card holder made from three candy canes glued together. The curved ends are the "legs." I thought these would make great holders for price signs. Sooo I got candy canes from the dollar store, got all sticky taking the wrappers off, broke three of them then glued them together. Got hot glue strings allll over the place and on the dogs, broke some more, the dog ate one, finally done. I took them out to the shop to spray with clear acrylic sealant. DH looked at them, looked at me, and said how much did you pay for those? I told him and he said, "well you wasted a dollar honey. They are not going to hold up, they're too brittle.
The dogs thought they were yummy.
(I just gave them the ends where there was no glue)
