This is a fun, yummy, kid friendly Christmas craft that involves candy! And can even spruce up your holiday table!
Make a few and throw them in the center of your table… fun right?
Here’s what you need to make candy Christmas trees:
- poster board
- glue gun
- cutting board
- packing tape
- yard stick
The premium poster board is .98 cents each at Wal- Mart… it is thicker and sturdier then regular poster board. We used 2 pieces to make 5 trees. First, roll a piece of poster board into a cone shape. Then, use packing tape to secure your cone.
Next, use a yard stick to measure the shortest distance on your cone…use this measurement to mark an even line.
We made 3 cone shapes first to make sure we liked the sizes for the table.
Now, for the fun stuff! We used the gum drops first. We cut each gum drop in half for 2 reasons #1: more candy for your money #2: they glue on easier and do not stick out as far on your tree.
Use your hot glue gun and attach the each piece of candy…
While my mom and I cut and glue…we had my little bro cutting open mints for the next tree…
We made 5 trees to use as center pieces on my mom’s dinning room table. We used glass candlesticks and white bowls as trunks.
Have you ever made candy cone trees? They’re easy and fun and yummy!

Toooo cute Ü Not sure I would ever get one of those made for eating the candy ;o)
I love these! I want to make them but I know a certain 3 year old who would probably lick them constantly. Maybe next year! Thanks for linking them up.
