Christmas Craft- {Whimsical Candy Ribbon Trees}

I took two white styrofoam cones and covered them in ribbon, bakers twine, waxed cotton ribbon and candies. These Trees are fun and whimsical. I placed each one on top of some glass candlesticks. To make the red and white bows, I cut fabric to size, twisted them and used push pins to push them into the styrofoam cone. I then used my hot glue gun to glue spice drops over them. The other ribbon and peppermint candies were also glued to the cone with a hot glue gun. A fun craft, and not to time consuming.
