Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees

Dont forget to enter my NEW GIVEAWAY

ice cream cone christmas trees

I know these cute little Ice Cream Christmas Tress have been around forever. Who even knows where they originated. But aren’t they darling? The kids had such a great time with these, that is after they got past the sugar rush from eating the frosting by the spoon fulls!
I went to the candy store in the mall and went to town in all of the candy bins. It was easier to get what I wanted then to buy a bunch of bagged candy and pick through it.
These are quick and painless to assemble. Just make sure you decorate them before the frosting has time to dry. The decorations stick better when the frosting is wet.
Have fun!!! Oh and dont forget to enter my

    I use these when I make gingerbread houses w/ the kiddos. If you put the gingerbread house on a large piece of cardboard, you have room for a ‘yard’ in which to put trees! The skinny red licorice pulled apart makes great garland. And they also sell little ‘gift’ chocolates that you can place around the trees šŸ™‚

    it’s waffle cones or nothing when i eat ice cream, so this looks like the perfect use for those stinkin’ sugar cones. šŸ™‚

  31. 31

    Those are great – but I still think your candy turkeys were cuter!

  32. 32

    Well I have never seen these before, but what a great project with children. My favorite is the one with snow/coconut. What candy turkeys? Okay now I have to go back to what I have missed. Darn Mexico and the 87 degree weather and the maragritas and the beach! I should punish myself for missing your posts and go back on vacation.

    These are so fantastic! I used to make icing and graham cracker Christmas cottages every year with a friend growing up. My sister and I STILL talk about how fun that was! I never thought of just doing trees. It’s such a great idea and a fun project : ) I’m including this as one of the activities in a Christmas Book Countdown I’m doing on my craft blog this month. Thanks for the inspiration!
