What do you guys think of my candy cane light poles?  It was my first attempt at making something.  I made a total of 5 poles and they are BRIGHT! I think I’ll be doing some more projects as I had a lot of fun with this.

I was on board as soon as I read "candy cane light poles".  Then I saw the picture.  Great job!

Looks great, exactly what I want to do. I'd use color changing light bulbs to give it that sort of magical feel! Actually been wanting to do this for a few years, just no time. How did you paint the pole? PVC?

Very close...3 inch pipe and 6 foot tall. Plastic globe but I have LED bulbs so shouldn’t make much heat I would figure, or I hope.😆. In terms of painting I just spiral taped it with wide painters tape and spray painted the pipe. Anywhere I had tape on it the pipe was white.  Plan to drive a yard stake in the ground and bolt it to it. We’ll see how it works.
