November 11, 2012
There is something so magical about sitting down with Christmas music playing or your favorite Christmas movie and getting your craft gun heated up and rolling out the glitter, rock candy, sea shells and pine cones!  
The crafts that I am sharing today are just so fun and a few of them are unique too!

Supplies For Rock Candy Christmas Trees

How To Make Rock Candy Christmas Trees

  • Pour horizontal rows of candy crystals in three or more colors on a baking sheet-rows flush together.
  • Wrap solid light-color cardstock around foam cones-slightly overlapping the paper at the back of the cone and securing it with hot glue.
  • DO NOT apply the glue directly to the cone, it will melt it.
  • Large cones may need two sheets of paper to be completely covered.
  • Spread Craft glue on the cones and roll them in the crystals; let dry. Re-glue and re-roll if needed, in order to cover cones completely with crystals.  
  • Use hot-glue to fill in small gaps with hand-placed crystals
