Candy Tree!!!

Last year I decided I wanted to create a little candy themed tree for our daughter's room.
Due to relocation and moving circumstances, I didn't really do any decorating for Christmas last year but instead took advantage of all the post Christmas sales!
I managed to snag a few "candy" ornaments, but I discovered they were a bit of a challenge to find!
But, with a bit of creativity and a few craft supplies, I was able to put together a "sweet" little candy tree.


Here she is...another one of my three foot white trees (I LOVE white trees!!).
And I love this tree! I kind of end up wiping a bit of drool off my chin when I look at it...it looks so yummy!
My three year old loves it too - although admittedly not as much as her mommy - and reminds me often "those are not to eat, mommy, only look."


I wanted to incorporate several cupcake ornaments, but I only found one...and that was after Easter and it's not even an ornament!
I will make it my project next year to come up with some sort of cute hanging cupcake ornaments...I've already been scouting out the materials! In the meantime, this life sized bit of decadence takes the center stage on the tree. Love!!


I showed you the tutorial for these super cute lollies earlier in the week.
Click here if you missed the tutorial! They are so fun and easy to make.


More hanging candies made from left over lolly materials...


The glitter makes me all giddy!


I found some wired pink beaded garland last year on clearance, and I love the special touch it adds.


I came across a box of glittery plastic gumdrops at one our local boutiques earlier in the season. I knew they would be the perfect addition to the tree, so when I got home, I strung them together with fishing line to make little garlands.

Inexpensive pink and purple balls from Walmart tie in nicely with the pastel candy colors!
 Perfect for a little girl's room!


I wonder if visions of sugarplums dance through her head at night?!




And there you have it...one of my favorite trees in the house!


There are a few more trees to show you, but that will have to wait for another day!
I'm having trouble finding time to set up photo shoots when little wiggly bodies are not trying hard to see what mommy is doing (and maybe sneak into a photo or two!). But I can't wait to show them to you!
