You can also wrap and glue a piece of red curling ribbon around the top of the tree just beneath the sucker, to cover the ends of glued pieces of ribbon.
Step 6. You can also fill the empty space below the tree with small Christmas figurines (a snowman, Santa Claus, etc.) and small decorative bags filled with candy. You can even attach a nametag to each bag of candy.
