This was given to me by my friend Becky. She made these for her children to give to their teachers. I saw this same idea last year but forgot about it until Becky brought me one.
Then you fold the circles – in half one way, in half the other way – then in the opposite direction in between. See the photo to see how they are pinched up to form the tree shape.
You will also need to punch a hole in the center so you can string them on a skewer.
Becky also added shimmer paint to hers. You can’t see that well in this photo.
At the top punch out two stars from a yellow card stock and glue one on each side of the top of the skewer.
The bottom of the skewer has candy on it. With the base being a peanut butter cup. Becky added a marshmallow for some snow.
Since here were gifts she put the bottom inside a store bought bag and tied them up. But if you were serving for you family you could just set them out on a platter.
I know I saw this idea on someones blog last year and they used the gum drop bells and holiday type pieces which I wasn’t able to find last year so I never made any.
