Materials used to make this Christmas candy centerpiece: cardboard, green garland, various candy, a sucker/star lollipop, curling ribbon of different colors, a hot glue gun, double-sided tape, and scissors.

Step 1. Take a sheet of green cardboard and make a cone, securing it with a stapler or hot glue. You can also make a cone out of white cardboard and glue green paper on top of it. It’s not necessary to make a bottom for the cone.

Easy DIY christmas gifts - step 3. Prepare various candy pieces with wrappers of different colors.

Note: You can create a personalized Christmas tree using favorite candies of the recipient.

Using a little bit of hot glue or double-sided tape secure candy pieces to the cone the way you like it. (For better security, you may want to apply clear packing tape over the tails of candy pieces.) Do not leave a bare spot on the cone. It’s better to use smaller candy on the top and bigger pieces towards the bottom of the tree. Your candy Christmas tree should look good all the way around.

When you use double-sided tape, this project can be safely done by kids. If you use hot glue, adult supervision is required.

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.
