    Default Reusing Candy Canes for Valentines

    Too late to help anyone else out for this year, but maybe it will help people get more use out of their walkway candy canes for 2021. This year I designed a base and top fitting to take a pair of candy canes (or a set of 4) and turn them into a pretty reasonable heart shape for Valentines. Got some compliments on the design from a number of people so I thought I should post the 3D printer files on thingiverse and then mention it here in case anyone wanted to use it themselves.

    Below is an image of them turned on so you can see how they turned out.

    I'm doing this with my PEX arches this year. They look like the top of a heart when abutted together. Tore down most of my Christmas stuff, but with V-Day just 1 month away, it makes sense just to repurpose the arches and any pixels not attached to a Christmas ornament in particular. Just resequence it all using red, white and pink and be done.

    Here's what I get when I abut two PEX arches together. Looks like the top half of a heart:

    Give it a lot of reds, some whites, pinks...twinkles.... You can leave those out from Christmas and play a Valentine's Day sequence for a month longer.
