We have had these sweet cane winter creature lighting for several years (and I’m quite certain they have been my parents’ for some time, too), and remaining 12 months the lighting sooner or later bit the dust. It is impossible to find replacement lighting made for those, and starting over with absolutely new furnishings gets steeply-priced rapid. Rather than throwing everything out, I decided to re-string them with icicle lighting.
For this project, all you want are your vintage decorations and a new strand of icicle lighting. If you are lucky, you may purchase a strand even as a store is walking a huge promotional discount (i.E. 50% off).
First step changed into to carefully do away with the antique light strand, making sure no longer to lose any attachment pieces.
These are the attachments at the candy canes I actually have, so maximum ought to look comparable.
The icicle lighting fixtures I bought alternated lengthy and quick “icicles”. For an amazing spacing among each candy cane, I used each different long icicle. (I have plans for the opposite long icicles, however haven’t determined the right elements yet).
Next, you will reassemble the candy canes onto the new lighting fixtures. If yours are like mine, feed the base ring all the manner to the top of the icicle.

Attach the stake…
…And beautify your yard! Please pay no thoughts to my messy flower beds… This yr became loopy busy and I became not able to preserve up with the grass and weeds.
If I can ever locate the proper length, I plan to position greater huge clean or white plastic adorns over the other lengthy icicles to look like snowballs.
