    If they are unusual - Sell them as there are Collectors out there, like me!

    Use 2 to frame a long narrow mirror. - Use to stake Plants. - Stick them around a tall Planter or as Umbrella Stand. Cut off the hook ends and fit to a piece of wood to make Coat/Tool hooks. - Use Cut off pieces as Table mats etc....

    If the canes are artistic and good quality they can be displayed in a tall skinny vase or umbrella holder.

    i like the idea of just casually hanging them on a hall tree or put in the bottom circle of it.

    Maybe it’s just me but I see canes as a sign of disability or old age. Not a festive Christmas feel.

    Spray paint them in white paint and use red or green tape to make candy cane design, adhering the tape on the cane in a diagonal direction. Tie on a big bow with some holiday greenery and hang on the front door. Or use them to decorate the stair newel post with greenery and a bow. Here's a cute one. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/77/a4/65/77a46565b0ed9aa3af6a7e666495bddf--candy-cane-christmas-christmas-swags.jpg

    I sprained my ankle a few years ago and had to get a cane. I hated the way it looked and decoupaged it . Added a note of cheer for me. Any design will work and even some design paper . Bea

    Perhaps you have a smaller kitchen or bathroom window that you could hang curtains from the cane on. You could paint the canes or leave them natural wood depending on your decor. I would leave the curved part attached as I am sure you can find something to hang from it to accessorize whatever room you use.

    If push comes to shove, donate them to a place (nursing home) that has a Physical Therapy department. They can outfit them with the proper tips and an Ice attachment (I live in Maine) to give to their patients.
