Frequently Asked Questions

Should I eat these warm or cold?

These Candy-Filled Christmas Trees should be served chilled, otherwise, the icing may melt.

Do I have to use store-bought ice cream cones or can I make my own?

You do not have to use store-bought ice cream cones; you can make your own for this recipe. You can also use your own homemade icing if you prefer not to use store-bought.

Can I make this ahead of time and freeze it?

I do not recommend freezing these candy-filled Christmas trees because the candy inside may not do well when frozen and also the icing on the trees tends to separate from the sugar cones once thawed. 

How do I ice a smooth tree?

To ice a smooth tree, place a spot of icing on the cone and smooth it out in small sections the full length of the tree. As you turn the tree to ice all sides, use the cookie to gently hold the tree without getting icing on your hands. Be careful not the hold too tight or the cookie may crack.

How do I ice a spikey tree?

To ice a spikey tree, place your green icing into a piping bag or a zip lock bag with a 6-point tip attached. Start at the bottom of the tree and move upward, squeeze a small amount of icing out onto the sugar cone and then lift the 6-point tip straight up off of the spot of icing. Continue this pattern until the whole tree is covered.

Christmas is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about holiday treats! Why not try a fun twist on traditional Christmas trees? These Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees are perfect for any party or family gathering. The best part is they’re surprisingly easy to make. Give them a try this year!

Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees

My favorite thing about these Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees is how easy they are to make. Even kids as little as toddlers can create their own Christmas Tree Ice Cream Cone. Give the kids some frosting, some candy and some sprinkles, and let them at it.

My daughter loves to get in the kitchen to make something. She loved the Christmas tree cupcakes I had made but she wanted something that she could do since she is only 3 years old. I grab some extra sugar cones I had laying around and let her go to town with the leftover frosting I had. This ended up being a huge hit when I took my kids to grandmas house, all the kids loved doing this from one year old to 6 years old. It was fun to see how different the trees looked with each kid.

Are These Edible

Not only are they edible, I dare you to try to keep the kids from eating them. If you plan on letting the kids indulge, I recommend that you make sure their hands are washed and that they are not grabbing things around them or dropping the candies on the floor and then using them.

If you want the kids to eat these special treats, you will want to store them in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic or foil. This will protect the treats so that they can be eaten over several days. I know my kids are eating just as much candy and frosting as they are putting on their Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees so they do not eat the treats much as soon as they are made. But they like to nibble on them over the next few days.

How Long Will They Last

These Christmas tree treats can last a few days. The candies and the cone will get unappetizing if you do not make sure they are covered well. if covered, these treats can last for about 5 days.

Variations

What else can you use for these Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees? Honestly, the possibilities are endless.

  • Coconut. Kids can add coconut just because they like it or add it to represent snow on the tree.
  • Gum Drops. Add whole gumdrops, small ones will work best, around the tree or break them into pieces.
  • Different Candies. Just like the sprinkles, any kind of candies can be used. The kids enjoy adding chocolate candies as well as sour candies and chewy candies.
  • Use Candy rope or licorice. If you are wanting to have garland on your tree, use red licorice, candy rope or pull and peel twizzlers.
  • Sprinkles. If you want to have shaped ornaments on the tree you can use sprinkles of different shapes.
  • Use homemade frosting or store bought. You can use homemade frosting or store bought depending on what it easiest for you.

  • Sugar cones
  • Green frosting

DIY Christmas tree. 16 ideas on how to make a New Year's craft from improvised materials

We continue to decorate our home for the winter holiday. We have already made various snowflakes, hung them on windows and walls. Now we want to give the holiday symbolism. And this, of course, is the main princess of the celebration - the Christmas tree. I know that many feel sorry for the trees and replace them with artificial counterparts. But sometimes you just want to make something with your own hands in order to get satisfaction from the action and accent in the decor.

All craft ideas are easy to do with kids. To make it easier to do the job, make the basics in advance. And try not to skimp on decor. Buy more different beads, ribbons, ribbons, beautiful buttons. Collect small toys from kinders and decorate with them. And they will go into business and will not wallow.

How to make a Christmas tree from improvised materials (from pasta, from yarn)

You can create beauty from everything that is at hand. The main thing is to attach to this a share of imagination and all your accuracy. With modern devices, such as a glue gun, you can give the product original shapes and fix different textures and materials.

I know that wine bottle corks and ice cream sticks are also used. Well, we didn’t have any traffic jams at home, and the sticks have long been sold for different needs, so let’s move on to materials that any housewife will definitely have - pasta and yarn.

Let's start with pasta. I know that various snowflakes are made from them. It turns out that they are also suitable for the Christmas tree.

We will need:

  • Pack of pasta (better to use feathers)
  • Glue gun
  • Cardboard sheet
  • Paint
  • Decor

Feather or spiral shape is preferred. Choose a good manufacturer so that all the things are even and the same length.

First, we glue the cone out of cardboard. I do this by simply twisting the sheet around my hand. To prevent the workpiece from falling apart, we fasten it with a stapler.

And now we cut the base so that the tree stands straight and not crooked.

Next, put pasta on the hot glue. We take one.

We always start from the bottom. “Lay” the first two rows, i.e. glue them so that they lie on the surface, so the product will be more stable.

And the next rows must be raised exactly on the previous ones by an amount equal to half the “spiral”.

When you finish the top, we start to cover the whole craft with paint.

You can get green, or you can buy gold or silver spray paint. Only then you need to spray it not at home.

I really like the result. It doesn't take much time, but it looks very elegant.

Now it's time for yarn and cord.

To make a Christmas tree out of yarn, you need to wind the thread exactly one above the other on a paper cone. Periodically fastening it with hot glue to the base.

Decorate with decor.

This product is made even faster than pasta.

You can decorate them with buttons.

And I also want to share a version of a Christmas tree made of cord.

We need:

  • Cord
  • Wire
  • Decor

First we select the wire. It should be firm and not thin. From it we turn a cone-shaped spiral. We check for stability. The bottom can be wrapped twice.

We begin to string the cord onto the wire.

Dry and decorate.

Adhesive will give the structure additional strength and will not allow the cord to slide down the frame.

Large Christmas tree made of paper

Paper is always the first thing that is associated with the word "craft". And from it you can create not one Christmas tree, but a whole spruce forest in which not a single tree will be repeated!

Let's say we want a paper tree to make us happy on the kitchen table. Then you need to make it fluffy and voluminous. And also the most stable.

So, I picked up a few detailed master classes with a clear description of the process.

Version 1

We need:

  • Cardboard cone
  • Adhesive
  • Various shades of green paper.

Cut out many circles of the same size from paper.

And we begin to glue their edges to the cone, observing the rows.

The first layer is always at the base.

This craft is available in terms of difficulty, even for a two-year-old child. And it looks quite rich because of the different shades of the same color.

Option 2. Terry conical herringbone

Cut out 4 semicircles. Each of them is smaller than the previous one in diameter by 2 centimeters.

We glue the blanks into a cone and slightly cut the edges along the perimeter to get the volume. Fold the terry edges a little.

Now glue a smaller cone onto the largest piece. And so in the direction of decreasing.

That's the whole simple process.

Option 3. Let's make a Christmas tree from paper circles

Cut out 4 circles. Each of them is 1 centimeter smaller than the previous one.

Then we fold each circle 3-4 times in half.

We also make the base out of paper. You can wrap green paper around a pencil or a kebab stick.

We string round blanks on the trunk in descending order of size.

To give stability, the stem can be stuck into plasticine, wax or a wine cork.

Option 4

Mark 15 circles, decreasing the diameter by 1 centimeter each time. Then we divide each circle into 12 equal parts, drawing lines through the center.

From the center, mark half the radius and draw a circle. Now we cut the lines clearly to the drawn circle.

Glue the tips on each petal.

When you have completed all the levels, start assembling the Christmas tree from the widest row to the smallest.

How do you like ideas, I think you will find ideas for yourself.

Crafts from cotton pads for the new year in kindergarten

The child was taken aback by the task that tomorrow you need to bring crafts to kindergarten? And outside the window, of course, it is already night. Then you can use the packaging of cotton pads. In most families, they are actively used.

We need:

  • Pack of cotton pads
  • Carton for cone base
  • PVA glue
  • Decor

We fold the cardboard frame, connect the edges with a stapler.

Take a cotton pad and fold it in half.

Then we plant two tips of a cotton semicircle on harmless PVA glue.

And glue the workpiece to the base, after smearing its fold with the same PVA glue.

So we do row after row. It is better to glue cotton pads closer to each other so that there is a minimum of gaps.

It remains only to decorate the delicate beauty!

Children in kindergarten will definitely like your product, and they will not be ashamed in front of other parents.

Craft from napkins

Another very affordable material is napkins. You can use the most inexpensive and monophonic.

We take white, red, blue and green festive shades.

We fold the napkin several times to get the shape of a square, then cut the folds and staple the center crosswise.

Now fold over each layer to form a pom pom.

On the frame, lay out the first row with these balls. Then we glue balls and other Christmas tree decorations on double-sided tape.

And fill the entire surface of the frame with napkins.

Everything is pretty fast.

By the way, you can see how to make a Christmas napkin wreath here. It also turns out very nice.

Christmas tree made of sweets

A wonderful gift would be a craft made of sweets: buy a box of good sweets in a beautiful package at the grocery store.

It is made of two parts - a base for sweets and a barrel.

We glue the base with a side of 23 centimeters. When cutting, indent along the bottom edge and at one edge 1 cm. We will apply glue to them.

We decorate with beautiful paper or film. Glue the bottom to its base.

We make the trunk, decorate it and glue it to the frame.

Now we evenly put sweets, braid or Christmas tree beads on the hot glue.

Use the same base and candy colors.

Making a Christmas tree for the New Year from pine cones

Natural material always adds the right zest to decor. It immediately smells of freshness and resin at home. Will give a symbolic meaning to this winter holiday.

Cones are also suitable for various crafts.

You can create a Christmas tree from only cones, or you can dilute them with sisal balls, decorative flowers or fir branches.
The combination of cones and dried citruses also looks unusual.

Glue the bumps onto the base with hot glue. You can not think about the side that you have them. This will give a slight bewitching negligence to the product.

We alternate cones with Christmas balls or other decor.

Sprayable with artificial snow or white enamel.

Everything is quite easy, and the result is incredibly beautiful.

Light tinsel Christmas tree

Without tinsel, we can't imagine the New Year! There are no decorations on it now: stars with balls, and multi-colored tips. It decorates windows, curtains, walls and, of course, is used as a material for crafts: wreaths and Christmas trees.

Since most tinsel manufacturers thread it on thin wire, it can be easily bent and shaped.

A spruce tree is made from it in three minutes!

We will need:

  • Tinsel
  • Cardboard sheet
  • Double sided tape.

We make a base in the form of a cone from cardboard and glue it with double-sided tape.

Remove the protective film from the first row and start gluing the end of the tinsel tightly wrapping the frame.

If you do not have enough tinsel, then glue the end with tape, and put the next fluffy ribbon of the same color on top of it.

Fluffy pom-pom beauty

Pom-poms have also long been loved by our craftswomen. Previously, we made a dog out of them, now we will create a fluffy beauty.

The balls themselves can be made in two different ways: by wrapping 20 layers around a fork, or by using two round blanks.

We will go with the second method.

Take cardboard or plastic and cut out two identical rings.

Now, stepping back from the edge of the thread 5 centimeters, we begin to wind the yarn very tightly.

Then cut the outer fold between the blanks.

Tie the middle of the pom-pom with the end of the thread left so as not to lose all the threads.

Now we are looking for a thick wire and we turn it into a spiral. Leave the base wide. We string pom-poms on it.

If the wire is not found, then we use the experience of previous products and form a triangular or conical base.

Felt Christmas Tree Ideas

Felt is also popular with our crafters. No matter what they do, educational toys and Christmas tree decorations. Today I will give a few ideas for creating a spruce tree.

From the simplest to the most complex.

Option 1. Cut out 10 Christmas trees of the same size from felt. Fold in half and glue the fold to the trunk.
We use branches, saw cuts of trees (preferably spruce or pine).

Option 2. Cut out many identical triangles from felt.

Glue them to the frame in rows. The upper triangle lies between the two lower ones!

Option 3. We prepare 5 squares of different sizes: 9cm, 7 cm, 5 cm, 3 cm, 1 cm.

We make five pieces of each size.

Now we string the largest squares onto the thick one, distributing them diagonally to each other so that there are no voids.

We pass all the squares in this way.

New Year's beauty from fabric

And two more ideas of fabric beauties in the piggy bank. The ends can be finished with a decorative stitch with a thick contrasting thread. Sew buttons or beads onto symbolic branches.

Use several colors of fabrics and textures. For example, take velvet on one side and linen on the other.

You can also choose different patterns in the same color scheme or vice versa play with companion colors.

You can fill the Christmas tree with holofiber, synthetic winterizer or cuts, the remains of your creativity.

If the product is small, fill it with cotton.

My dears, I tried to find for you the most interesting and accessible materials for creativity. I'd love to hear your opinion in the comments!

DIY Christmas tree | Creative Portal

It's time to prepare for the New Year. And that means it's time for New Year's crafts and creativity. The main symbol of this holiday is, of course, the tree. It is this that we will make today with our own hands from improvised and natural materials. We offer a selection of simple but interesting ideas.

Christmas tree made of cone and rope

Christmas trees from tinsel

Christmas trees from cones

Christmas trees with their own hands from branches and sticks

Christmas trees made of paper

Christmas tree made of cone and rope

For this option you will need a cone (here glued from plastic), you can cut 4 identical triangles from cardboard and glue them along the edges to make a pyramid. Next, wrap the string from top to bottom with twine and fix it with hot glue. The base is ready, it remains only to decorate with New Year's accessories: beads, bows, small balls, etc. You can wrap it with a mini garland. By the way, you can replace the twine with any other rope, and then paint the Christmas tree from a can, for example, in gold or green.

Christmas trees from tinsel

Here we also make a cone of the required size from thick paper (newspaper or drawing paper). Cut off the bottom part so that there is a flat base. We wrap with tinsel, fixing the tips with hot glue. Tinsel can be alternated by color.

Another version of the tinsel Christmas tree, but more complex. But such a Christmas tree can be used for more than one year. You will need wooden slats and a round base. We assemble the structure by connecting the rails together with a cone in the upper part, and in the lower part spread along the perimeter of the base. Wrap the chain-link with mesh, securing it with plastic ties (clamps). Decorate with tinsel of a suitable color, for example, green or silver.

Christmas trees made of cones

We take a solid base (here is a square 18 x 18 cm made of thick plastic. You can take a wooden base ( will look beautiful saw cut wood ). In the center of the base on hot glue, glue a pole - a wooden stick. Then, starting from the bottom glue the cones in a circle with a hot glue gun, gradually narrowing the circle.The top can be decorated with an elongated cone.It remains to decorate and decorate our Christmas tree with Christmas decorations, a garland.

can be decorated at will and availability of materials

Do-it-yourself Christmas trees from branches and sticks

Such an interesting design can be assembled from thick tree branches (for example, cutless), decorate with a garland, cones, stars and balls.

Another interesting version of the Christmas tree. Although it is without decor, it looks original. You will need thick branches of the desired length, the base is a saw cut of a tree and a twine rope.

In the next version, the branches are tied with a rope at some distance from each other and decorated with balls that are glued to the branches with hot glue.

And here is a mini Christmas tree made of branches and ice cream sticks. You will need PVA glue, rope and decorative elements. Can be used as a decoration for a large Christmas tree.

Christmas trees made of paper

No less interesting are products decorated or completely made from the material familiar to us - paper ( cardboard). There is no limit to fantasy here. Let's consider just a few options.

These small simple Christmas trees can be made from cardboard triangles, painted with acrylic paints as desired and decorated with any decorative elements, such as stars.

Can be used as a garland by making several pieces and hanging on a rope, or separately - to decorate a large Christmas tree.

It will be interesting if you use corrugated paper for decoration. Here it is necessary to cut off about 8 cm and make cuts to the middle along the bottom edge. Wrap it around a triangle of cardboard ( can be any desired size ). Insert (or glue) a leg - a wooden culinary skewer or a twig. You can make a stand for installation or stick it into a piece of plasticine. Decorate.

And you can make such a funny Christmas tree from disposable paper plate . You need to paint the underside green. Bend twice in half and secure with glue or a stapler. Decorate. You can take it to kindergarten as a craft, make a garland out of several such Christmas trees or decorate a table with it.

And this is a more complex version, but very beautiful and unusual. You will need cardboard triangles glued together, and kraft paper, which will be crushed and glued to the cone.
