We got our Christmas trees and doweling at a Dollarama but a Dollar Tree would work just as well. Any Christmas decor can work if you can’t find the same trees, but keep in mind they need to be taller than a candy cane and wooden, so you can drill a hole to add the dowels.

What do you need to make a Candy Cane Holder?

  • Wooden Christmas decor (we used trees attached to a wooden log base).
  • Wooden dowels.
  • Paint (red and white)
  • Sealer (such as ModPodge)
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Drill
  • Glue
  • Accessories (optional)
  • Candy canes

How to make a DIY Candy Cane Holder

  • Measure your dowels and cut any excess length off. You want the horizontal bar to be high enough to lift and hold the candy canes.
  • Paint the dowels. We decided to paint the dowels white adding a red swirl to the vertical ones, similar to a candy cane.
  • Seal the dowels once the paint has dried.
  • Drill a hole in the bottom of the wood holder, big enough for the red and white dowels to fit.
  • Using the pipe cleaners, secure the vertical and horizontal dowels together (see photo below).
  • Insert the dowels into the drilled holes in the Christmas tree base.
  • Glue any accessories such as small buttons, jewels or glitter (optional)
  • Add your candy canes!
