A Jolly Christmas Tree

29 Nov

I’m SO excited to announce the winner of the Barnes and Noble gift card! Congratulations to Lissa!! Hope you enjoy shopping with your gift card!¬†Please email me at teachingmamablog(at)gmail(dot)com to receive your prize.

Thank you to all who participated!! I am blown away by your support and love.

I want to share an adorable little tree we made with just a few supplies. Here’s what you’ll need:

*styrofoam cone

*green paint & paintbrush



To start out, we painted the styrofoam cone green and let it dry. I should also note that I cut the cone smaller because it seemed too tall.

Then, I had Troy take the gumdrops and sort them by color. This was good practice for him!!

Then, I poked toothpicks onto the cone and Troy put gumdrops on them. He really enjoyed this part–look at his concentration!

And here’s the finished look! We have a ton of fake snow so I put them on the plate and laid the tree on top. It will be a cute centerpiece for the table!¬†And now that the enormous Rockefeller’s Christmas tree is lit, the holiday season is officially here! Merry Christmas!!
