Art Project # 57-- Candy Trees

Once I saw what a hit our gingerbread train was I looked around for some more candy crafting ideas.  I think mostly my boys just like the idea of snacking while crafting but that's OK.  I don't mind; I just love seeing them hard at work.  

We decided to make some candy trees!

I had the boys each pick a candy they wanted to use: holiday M & M's, mints, Hershey Hugs and Kisses and they set about filling up their tree with them.  We "painted" the trees with frosting and then stuck the candies onto the frosting.

They sure are a yummy and festive addition to our 100 Days of Art Challenge.

  1. These are AWESOME!!! I just love all of your art project ideas. Wow, have you guys really done 56 projects? 😀

    1. We have! And I have about three more I'm in the process or writing up; we're really knocking them out now that we're inside and at home more often.

  2. These are so cute!! Lovely!!
    Thanks so much for stopping by!! Too bad that your hubby doesn't like the idea of a Tree in the bedroom. My husband learned a long time ago to never tell me what not to do!!

    1. Ha ha! Mine would only object to having to carry it up from the basement and then store it away again. We do have a tree in our living room and one small tree in each of our boys rooms...

  3. They all turned out great, your boys did a wonderful job! Thank you for sharing at The Really Crafty Link Party this week. Pinned!

  4. Wow! You are ambitious! Thanks for sharing your fun projects with us at the Funtastic Friday Blog Hop!

    1. LOL! Yep, I certainly am. We actually had too many projects planned to get to them all this year. I'm kind of bummed about that!
