Gum Drop Christmas Tree DIY

November 21, 2012




This is a fun and simple post on how to make a really cute Gumdrop Christmas Tree-
Years and Years ago I made one very similar to this tree with a group of craft ladies at my Church.  I am going to share with you today on how to make this tree.  This project would be fun for children 6 and up.





What you will need:

Cone shaped styrofoam ( comes in a variety of sizes)
Large package of red and green gumdrops
Toothpicks
Craft
Floral Shears 

Because these styrofoam cones were small, I used Floral Shears to cut the toothpicks in half.
Insert the toothpick into the styrofoam cone and then push the gumdrop onto the toothpick.
Alternate with different color gumdrops.  You can go vertical or horizontal, in your placement of the gumdrops.





This project is short and fun-so, sit down with a hot cup of peppermint tea, some of your very favorite Christmas Carols and enjoy-it doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be fun!!
