The candy canes could be used this year if I covered them with some tinsel wire garland I already had on hand (purchased on clearance last year).
Since I used a wire garland, it was simple to wind and secure it around the candy canes.
10 candy canes were finished in no time at all.
They were the perfect addition to a small tree on the stair landing.
They look really cute. I'm so glad I didn't throw those old plastic candy canes in the trash.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
