If using a glue gun (recommended): Heat glue gun. Set it up so you can quickly pick it up while holding the candy canes in place. NOTE: if using sticky dots, open the package for quick use.
Hold the long sides of the candy canes together, so the curved ends are evenly spaced. Holding them tightly together place the bottoms on a flat surface to ensure the bottom is level.
Glue or stick them them together, starting with two of the candy canes. Then glue the third in place when the first two have set and are sturdy.
Wrap the ribbon, trim or washi tape around the candy cane cluster for decoration.
Use festive cards (refer to photos) or print name place settings.
Store candy cane place card holders at room temperature until you’re ready to use them.
