A little PVC pipe goes a long way in this holiday lighting idea. Purchase P-traps, an elbow, a drain, and pipes in your desired lengths, and then assemble the pieces into a candy-cane shape. Wrap the assemblage with painter's tape to create the classic twisty, striped pattern, cover with a few coats of red spray paint, and then remove the tape. Finish by drilling holes that are large enough to accommodate your lights, and string them through. Display wherever you need a bit of holiday cheer—indoors or out.
