Edible Candy Tree Decorations

Edible Candy Trees


Make a party or table decoration that looks good enough to eat. Candy-covered Christmas trees are a great project for even the youngest of crafters because frosting serves as the glue to hold everything in place. The end result looks (and tastes) great!


  • Peppermints and/or Red Hots Candy
  • Cone/Tree shaped base (we used paper mache cones from a local craft store)
  • Butter cream frosting



  • Make basic butter cream frosting.
  • Spread the frosting on cone. Apply generously and in a circular motion so candy will stick.
  • Attach candy row by row.
  • Let dry overnight.
