Supplies

FloraCraft® Foam:
Sheet: 1” x 12” x 18”
Ball: 3”

Other Materials:
Acrylic Paint: Green
Glitter: Green
Wood Dowel
Holiday Container

Tools:
StyroCutter®
Low-Temp Glue Gun
Wire Cutters
Black Marker

Instructions

  1. Enlarge templates to desired size and cut out.  Use the black marker to trace Christmas tree shape onto the foam sheet.  Use the foam cutter to cut out the tree following the package instructions carefully.
  2. Paint the tree green.  While the paint is still wet sprinkle with glitter.  The paint acts as glue and secures the glitter to the tree as it dries.  Paint the wooden dowel green as well and let all parts dry.
  3. Glue a 3” ball into the bottom of the container.  Glue a 6” dowel into the ball in the container then glue the tree onto the dowel.
  4. Fill the top of the container with Christmas candies.  Tip: For unwrapped candies, cover the exposed foam ball with tin foil or clear wrap before filling.

    I first seen your projects as an ad in Crafts-n-things. I really like the projects. They look easy to do and do not look cheap.
