Candyland Christmas Tree


Candyland Christmas Tree

Decorating Christmas tree’s is my passion and a few of my designs have really done well in the Pinterest world. One in particular went on a pin frenzy and is still generating traffic.

So I thought I should do a post dedicated to this tree with a short video tutorial.




I’ve done several versions of a Candyland tree over the years. From a gingerbread theme to whimsical popcycles, it never gets old.

When kids see this tree in the stores I decorate them in… they break from their parents, run over to it and ‘Hey Mom… LOOK!’

For the adults that see this tree, they always smile and comment about how amazing it is… I think it brings back childhood memories of playing the board game Candyland and fantasizing about how wonderful it would be to walk through an entire forest of edible sweet goodies.

Some props I’ve used are not prefab decorations at all. Styrofoam has been handy in creating an over sized Marshmallow garland.

 Try using real ice cream sugar cones and add styrofoam ball snow men.

Cookie sheets and rolling pins are perfect for a bakers delight tree.

A large red ball can be made into a big Cherry like I did with this tree… which I named ‘Cherry on Top’.

Use cotton snow to simulate whip cream and of course cupcake ornaments add to the deliciousness of this Candyland Christmas Tree.
