Valentine’s Candy Trees

Valentine'sCandyTrees
Valentine’s may not typically be an occasion that you decorate for, but these Valentine’s Candy Trees are so fun and easy to make!  Little helpers can sort and beg for “just one more,” too!

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 candy, 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.

Browse through the Valentine’s aisle at any store, and you will find so many possibilities for these adorable trees!

Valentine’s Candy Trees

Supplies:
White styrofoam cones, varying sizes (Dollar Store, Hobby Lobby, Michael’s)
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 and begin to arrange the candies in rows.  Lainey helped me sort the conversation hearts into colors, making it easy to grab the color needed to keep a pattern going:).  We did find that putting the glue on the cone instead of the candy worked best.

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

**Update to post: Lots of questions 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.  The only tree that has needed replacing is the marshmallow one due to drying out.  Hope this helps!
