These candy cane name holders add a touch of festive spirit to a table set for Christmas lunch. They're quick and cheap to make but very effective.
3 candy canes per name holder
Tie two candy canes together by tightly binding them with an elastic band. The curly parts should face away from each other a little.
Now insert the third candy cane through the elastic with the curly part facing away from the other two. You are making a little tripod to keep the name card holder stable.
Tie a little ribbon around the candy canes to hide the elastic band.
Cut a piece of card to rest in the curls, write the name and place in.
