I love to use candy in our Christmas decorating. It is pretty cheap to buy, and lots of fun to craft with, especially for kids. And of course it is always nice to sample a little bit as we craft. These DIY Candy Christmas Trees are cute and easy to make!
We started out making Christmas trees using styrofoam cones covered with candy. We were planning to make trees using candy melts, gum drops and M&Ms. But someone (me!) ate all the gum drops, so we ended up using peppermints instead.
We used royal icing to stick the candy to the styrofoam cones, and it worked pretty well. We thought glue would take too long to dry, and the royal icing dries relatively quickly. We did find that if we did too many rows at once the candy would start to slide down the cone, so we had to let the icing harden a little as we worked.
Crafting with candy is fun for the whole family, and a fun way to get some new holiday decorations without spending much money!
Let me know how you are decorating this year!

These are such fun ideas! I would never have thought to decorate with candy.
what a great way to get decorated for Christmas–my only concern would be that my little guy would try to eat his way through our house–but it looks very pretty!!!
I love the candle holders – so simple and you don’t have to worry about having separate decorative items for each season – I could replace the mints with red hots for Valentines and Peeps for Easter – you really got me thinking – thanks
So cute, I want to make the tree with our girls! thanks for sharing!

I saw a candy tree like this at a birthday party over the weekend, so cute!
I just love those little trees, though I’d probably eat all of the candy and my tree would be bare!
these are so cute, they wouldn’t last long in my house
