Mary @ Home is Where the Boat Is shows us how to transform your holiday table with this easy candy cane vase centerpiece.

Start by securing a smaller vase inside a larger one, then fill the gap with decorative materials like candy canes and peppermint candies. Add your choice of flowers in the inner vase, and for an extra touch, wire pine cones to some candy canes for added interest.

Crafting a cute candy cane swag for your candy-themed Christmas is a breeze with this DIY by Chloe Crabtree.

Starting with a styrofoam base, wire it to create a hanging loop and hang it on a Command brand hook. Build up the swag with artificial evergreens, focusing on the edges.

Attach a festive sign securely, and adorn with candy canes and peppermint ball picks. Finally, add ribbon loops and tails for a lively touch.

Next, Corine Mapes- Junk to Gems shows us how to create DIY peppermint sticks to add a festive touch to your Christmas decor.

Using chenille cleaning cloths, rip them into strips for a rustic texture. Wrap these strips around six-inch wooden dowels, securing them with hot glue. Tea-dye the strips overnight for an antiqued effect. Add red and white homespun fabric strips as stripes.

Sprinkle glitter using spray adhesive for a sparkly finish. Finally, tie three pieces together with muslin and attach a "peppermint sticks" tag.

DIY gingerbread and peppermint garland

4. Gingerbread and peppermint garland

Create an adorable DIY gingerbread garland for a sweet holiday touch to your decor, following these instructions from Kiki DiY's. You'll need various ribbons, including two rolls of 2.5" ribbon and one roll of 1" ribbon.

Start by removing old pieces from a garland or gather white and sparkly mesh. Make loops with the mesh and secure them with zip ties. Cut ribbon for smaller bows and crisscross them to create a pattern. Make bows by pinching and securing them with zip ties.

Decorate with peppermint picks and add a central funky bow. Finish by assembling the garland, incorporating candy canes and bows. This DIY garland can be displayed on your mantle, cabinets, or windows.

DIY peppermint Christmas tree

Nick Kreticos demonstrates how to turn a tomato cage into a Christmas tree. Secure the top with a zip tie to create a conical shape. Attach scrunched deco mesh using pipe cleaners, repeating the process for each layer.

Add bows with peppermint ribbon and secure with pipe cleaners. Apply ornaments by dipping them in hot glue and placing them sporadically. Use ornaments on sticks for easy insertion. Top the tree with an ornament.

Incorporate decorative sprays, peppermint candies, and single-loop ribbon pieces for a fuller look. Display your peppermint-themed tomato cage Christmas tree indoors or outdoors for a festive touch.
