Start by cutting a 2-3 foot section of the PVC pipe (this will determine how tall your candy cane is!)
Holiday Yard Decor From PVC Pipe - How to Make a HUGE Candy Cane!
The holidays are a special time of year for many people. No matter where you live, chances are people are decorating for whichever holiday they are celebrating! I made a pretty cool piece of holiday yard decor using a large piece of PVC pipe and a few accessories!
Then cut three 3 inch sections.
Next, attach the elbow pieces and the connectors you cut with glue.
Do not attach the top of the candy cane to the base. You need to be able to reach inside.
You can now drill holes along the front of your candy cane, spacing them appropriately for your lights.
After your holes are drilled, add a coat of white paint. After the paint dries, add painters tape to make stripes and then add a coat of red paint.
Once the paint tries, you can feed your lights through the holes you drilled. Use the flange to help hold your candy cane. We will ours with rocks and also used a flat brick in the garden to help hold ours up.
If you have trouble getting yours to stand on its own, try staking it or putting something heavy on the base. Some cute boxes decorated like presents would look adorable!
