I had 20 of these dollar store candy canes that in the past have hung on the clothesline in December. This year I decided to line the driveway with them!



There are 18 with a simple green bow and 2 with a more elaborate bow. This is because I ran out of green! I had enough to use a little to tie-in the look with the rest. Wink





The fancier bows are on each side of the driveway, down by the road. The rest are at the posts along the way up to the gate.



I bought the canes a few years ago (for 50 cents each after the holiday!), but I am going to go back to see if I can get a few more to go further up. I'll have to figure out something with  the bow sitch, of course.

Thanks, everyone! Hopefully when we get some more snow, I can get a decent shot of the driveway as a whole.

These are so cute! And I'm betting that they look much better on your fence than on the clothesline!  Cheesy
