Candy Topiary Trees

Each year I do my kitchen up in a Gingerbread/Candy Land theme. This year will be no different. I decided to create candy topiary trees to add to my kitchen decor this year. This project is very simple. I hot glued some gum drops to 3 inch Styrofoam balls till they were filled all around. I inserted a candy stick at the bottom to serve as a tree trunk so to speak. (please excuse my messy workshop)

This process can be very quick and easy with the use of a glue pot. The glue gun is also fine but you have to keep putting the ball down to grab the gun to get hot glue on another piece of candy. That makes me nuts! I'm impatient to say the least.

One 10.5 oz bag of gum drops will do one 3 inch ball. Unless you are like me, glue 1 drop, eat 2, then you may need 2 bags per ball! HaHa.

Once I was done gluing all the candy on, I hot glued the trees inside these great flower pots that I found on clearance. They each had a shabby looking flower arrangement in them which I took out. So for only $2 a piece for these great looking containers, it was a great deal. Please note that these balls get very heavy after they are filled with candy so be sure to secure them well in the container you choose to use. I tied a simple holiday ribbon on to complete the look and there you have it, candy trees perfect for a candy kitchen. I think I will be placing these on the mantel over my cook top. We will see. I change things around so many times during my Holiday decorating before I am actually done, but that's all part of the Christmas fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will making a lot more Christmas things in the coming weeks so be sure to stop in. I'm currently working on a recycled chandelier and I am so excited to finish it up and show you the amazing transformation. I don't start decorating for Christmas till after Thanksgiving but there is nothing wrong with getting a head start on the craft projects. Have a great weekend everyone!

Stay warm, it's a gettin cold out there!!! Love, Patty
