Cute and Creative Candy Cane Décor for Christmas

The first week of December is when most people begin to put up their decorations. As I started to put mine up today, I looked at the candy cane ornaments I had. I usually just hang them up on my tree, but this year I realized that there are so many other ways in which candy canes can be used to decorate.

For Christmas, most people put up a wreath on their front door. Wreaths are made up of evergreens which signifies everlasting life. Mini candy canes can be stuck or hung on the wreath before it is put up. Image – Trendy and Wild

Putting Up a Candy Cane Christmas Garland

A few candy canes can be strung together using a rope or string and this can be hung up on a wall or around the Christmas tree. It’s a simple decoration, but a cute one!

Candy Cane Hangings

Wall and door hangings are quite popular nowadays. People tend to hang the decorations up so that they save on floor space. If you’ve got toddlers at home, it prevents them from bumping into and pulling down décor. There are many wall hangings that can be made at home, like wreaths and garlands. Also, candy cane decals can be stuck to the wall. They do not damage the wall and can easily be pulled off once Christmas is over.

Wrap your Gifts with Candy Canes

If you’re one of those people that likes to keep the gifts under the tree a while before Christmas, along with bows and ribbons, you can also stick mini candy canes to the gift wrapping. If you’ve got kids, they’ll love this, though they might be tempted to open the gifts way before Christmas.

Deck Up your Christmas Tree with Candy Cane

Besides baubles, you get candy cane ornaments that are made specially to hang on the tree. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve got a big or small Christmas tree because candy canes come in all sizes too! If you’ve got a small tree, mini candy canes can be put upon them. Or for a medium-sized tree, small ones can be used for the top of the tree and larger ones for the bottom. Also, you can make a candy cane star for the top of the tree.
