Candy Christmas Trees
Here are some of my candy Christmas trees. They really are easy to make and are very attractive. I am still experimenting with them. Finding the narrower wire ribbon has been a challenge! I saw another picture of some trees that used tulle (not netting - netting won't stay pinned to the styrofoam cone!) instead of ribbon. Personally I like the all ribbon version best, but because of the lack of narrower ribbon, my second choice is a bow on top and fill in a little with the tulle. Regular pins do not work well with this craft. They don't tend to hold the candy well. I used T pins and larger ball end pens. I liked the T pins best but wish I had found smaller than 1 1/2 and 1 1/4" pins! Obviously that is something that should be in my craft storage from now on!
