Do you have one of these tabletop trees? They are just darling and I love how this one from Country Living is trimmed with candy-cone treats – the perfect decorative element for a children’s decorating party! It’s easy to put together with just a few items:
Using ready-made ice-cream cones, CAREFULLY drill 2 side holes with a wooden skewer (apply gentle pressure to avoid cracking). Brush with icing and dip in colorful sugar or nonpareils. Let dry thoroughly before slipping a thin ribbon through each hole, and then fill with small candies.
To simplify assembly, stand each cone in a small glass while filling. Fill in the bottom space of the cone with paper towel to keep fragile cones light enough to hang. Now you have another fun favor/decor item that the kids will love!
