The basis tree of sweets — this is a cone from cardboard or heavy paper. For the "classic" Christmas tree, it should be green, but you can make, for example, a golden or silvery tree.

For this you need to cut out of cardboard two the details of the star, glue them together, leaving staklenim the bottom, to hang the star with foil and put on the top of the tree. Between the candy you can stick the rain or small Christmas toys, you can even make a Christmas tree garland out of small candy.
Beautiful tree made of sweets, "planted" in a pot. To do this, you will need a "trunk", a wooden stick or a dense cardboard tube. You can take a ready-made - such usually wrapped with foil or food film. Color the "trunk" with paint from the can and "plant" it in a plastic pot filled with polystyrene (in the middle of the foam it is necessary to make a hole slightly smaller in diameter than the trunk so that the tree is tightly reinforced). Polyfoam is also better to paint with paint from the can. A pot can be simply painted, painted or decorated in a decoupage technique.
