Make Your Own Holiday Tree with Starlights...

This Starlight Candy Tree is super easy, yet makes a big impact on the mantle, as a centerpiece or anywhere you can think of!  It's fun to do and simple enough that the kids can lend a hand.  I chose to keep the Starlights wrapped as I like the way the cellophane sparkles and catches the light.  It also helps fill in the gaps between the candies.  The tree stores easily in a plastic bag during off season.  Mine has been stored in a hot/cold attic for 2 years and still looks like new!  I hope you have fun with this project.

(2-3) Bags of Starlight Candies
(1) Large Styrofoam cone or make one out of cardboard
Hot Glue Gun

  1. Keeping Starlights wrapped, place a small amount of glue on the back of each candy and press onto cone shape.
  2. Work from the top down, paying attention to spacing.  You may have to add or subtract space in between each candy to get them to fit correctly. 
  3. Turn the cellophane ends so they fill the areas where there will be gaps.
  4. Continue until the entire cone is covered.

Best Of Luck With Your Project!
