Today I drew a Christmas candy cane in colored pencils. I was only using 2 colored pencils of red and white. A traditional red and white candy cane. It seems imperfect without some candy canes on Christmas decor. It can be used to dress up your Christmas tree, as Christmas souvenirs or simply as refreshments for kids and adults.
