Well, OK, you really shouldn't eat them, but they are very cute nonetheless. Take a look.
These are a few of Jamie's materials.... spice gumdrops, cherry slice gumdrops, peppermint puffs and m&m's. She also uses heavy duty poster board to create the tree forms, some hot glue, a knife, a cutting board, packing tape and some marshmallows.
She uses various candies and patterns to create a beautiful holiday display. I just love these! I think they might even last a few years if you packed them away carefully in some oversized ziploc storage bags, too.
I hope Jamie's project inspired you as much as it did me! I'm still praying for a few more hours in the day -- too many great projects and not enough time! Be sure to check out C.R.A.F.T. for more fabulous tutorials and ideas!
