How To Make Candy Cane Trees
If you saw our last post, Children’s Gingerbread House Decorating Party, then you saw our Candy Cane Topiary Trees! They are not only whimsical little decorations perfect for the holidays but also super easy to make! We are all about the crafty tree DIYs! – if you missed our post on Berry Trees & Ornaments – check it out here! Do you have a festive, holiday DIY you’d like to share with our readers, email us! And check out this glitter tree tutorial on our Paperie Guide site, The Celebration Shoppe!
Here’s What You Need:
* Styoform tree cone
* Candle holder – glass works well
* Floral tubes, found at craft stores
or at your local Florist
* Recipe for Royal Icing Glue (you can find it on this post!)
* Two sizes of candy canes and
one big festive lollipop (for the top)
* Christmas ribbon
These trees are easy to make and will last a long time if you use the plastic candy canes. Feel free to use real candy canes, it just might be a bit sticky but fun for the kids! We found the Styrofoam tree, glass candle holder, candy canes at The Dollar Tree.
Here’s What To Do:
* Glue the clear floral tube into the glass candle holder
