Candy Cane Fence in 2003

Part of our original Candy Cane fence, in 2003. The full fence was about 150' long, with large canes every 8 feet and smaller canes filling in the gaps.  Our Arch Fence and North Poles now fill this space. 

We moved to a new home in 2002, and unlike our previous home, our current home does not have a fence around the front yard.  To provide both visual appeal, as well as a physical barrier to help keep folks from getting too close to the displays, we decided to add a Candy Cane Fence.

Our original fence consisted of 16 candy canes, with red and white lights strung between them.  The candy canes were made from PVC water pipe, which we bent into a cane shape, and added the stripe with red electrical tape.  The canes were held upright with fiberglass  fence posts, and stood approximately 4 feet high

Lighted Canes.For the 2003 display we added many small candy canes to the display.  They were placed between the large canes to help complete the fence, and in various other places along the perimeter of the display.  We also have 22 lighted candy canes along both sides of the driveway which are computer-controlled.  These smaller canes were purchased -- we tried making some for the 2002 season but found the smaller water pipe flattened with our bending technique.

Candy Canes galore!  This railing made a good temporary storage place while we were working on the canes. 

.For the 2007 season, we retired the large candy canes, freeing up room for our LED Arch Fence which debuted that year.  Some of the smaller canes are still used as part of the arch fence and elsewhere in the display, as are the lighted canes along the driveway.  The candy canes were eventually sold and are hopefully adding to someone else's display now.

We have documented our procedure for doing the PVC bending and creating the large candy canes in a "How To" tutorial on the website www.computerchristmas.com.  Please click here for a direct link to the tutorial.
