Glue a meaningful photo to a piece of heavy cardboard, and frame the photo with two Christmas candy canes arranged to face each other to form a heart. Cut the cardboard so that only the candy canes and photo are showing. Attach a ribbon to the top so the recipient can hang it from their tree.  Find instructions here.

7. Tie a pretty ribbon around a candy cane, and hang it in your car for a holiday-themed and so pretty car air freshener.

9. Use candy canes to create placeholders for your holiday dinners. Snap ends off three candy canes to make differing lengths. Attach candy canes together so that two face forward (these will hold the card) and one faces backward for balance (similar to an easel) with hot-glue.
