Sweet Gumdrop Tree!

This easy craft is sure to be a favorite among your children this holiday season!

To create these gumdrop trees, you only need a few items:
  • styrofoam cones (available at local craft store)
  • toothpicks
  • gumdrops

Set the styrofoam cone flat side down- this will be your tree.  
Break the toothpicks in half, adding the gumdrops to each toothpick.  Stick the remaining part of the toothpick into the cone.  It's easiest to start from the bottom and work your way to the top of the tree, and it's easiest to work in rows, moving from right to left.

To preserve your tree for future years, spray it with clear acrylic spray paint (also available at a local craft store).  Then cut out round piece of felt and write your child's name and year on it and glue it to the bottom of the tree, for memory's sake.

Remember, this sweet treat is for looks only!
