Create A Candy Tree

This makes a nice teacher gift or for anyone else who you would like to give a little something to. Be careful with kids though, as the candies are attached with pins.


– 6-inch Styrofoam cone (I used green coloured)

– T-pins or straight pins – Different types of individually wrapped candy

– Ribbon, small bows or decoration for “tree” top Directions:

Starting at the bottom, attach candy to Styrofoam cone using pins. Keep on making layers until you get to the top. When getting close to the top point the pins in a downward position. Attach a bow or small decoration to the top. If you use unwrapped candy put the tree in a cellophane bag before putting the decoration on the top.
