Valentine’s Day Decorations-Candy Trees

Valentine'sCandyTrees
Valentine’s Day may not typically be an occasion that you decorate for, but these Valentine’s Candy Trees are so fun and easy to make! Also, little helpers can sort the candies

I’ve posted a Conversation Heart Tree on the blog before, but sadly, he did not survive the move in one piece. In addition to the conversation hearts, we decided to make a couple more with other candies, and we love how they turned out!

Lainey and I worked on this Conversation Heart Tree over the Christmas break when it was bitterly cold and dreary outside.

Valentine’s Candy Trees

Supplies:
Styrofoam Craft Cones, varying sizes
Hot glue gun/hot glue
Assorted candy (shown are conversation hearts, gummy hearts, and peppermint marshmallows)
Ribbons (optional for top of trees)

Starting at the bottom of the cone, place a dab of hot glue on the cone, arranging the candies in rows. Lainey helped me sort the conversation hearts by color, making the patterns easy to repeat. We did find that putting the glue on the cone instead of the candy worked best.

Finally, tie small bows, if desired, and glue to the tops of the trees.

**Update to post: Lots of questions were raised about storing these guys! I have been making these for Christmas and Valentines for years, reusing them year after year. They are wrapped in bubble wrap and stored in big plastic storage tubs with tops. Thankfully, only the marshmallow tree has had to be replaced. Hope this helps!
