Were you following redheadcandecorate.com (subscribe here) 4 years ago?  If you were, thank you so much for hanging out with us for this long.  I find it hard to believe, but it was four years ago that I posted the “Appetizer Tree” and holy cheese cubes it’s been viewed 248,361 times.  That is quite shocking, and informative to me as a writer.  I’m going to stick with what folks like…and trees made out of cones is one of them 😉 .  Now you know where I’m going with this, don’t you?  Introducing the “Christmas Kiss Tree”…

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Isn’t she just lovely?  What’s really funny is that it looks like there are big green mountains behind it up there.  That really wasn’t my intention, I was just trying to add pillows to make it look cozy, and then boom we have mint mountains.  Well, regardless the “Christmas Kiss Tree” sure turned out cute, and it was fairly simple to make.  Notice I use the word “fairly”.  That means you’ll need a little patience for this one.  The “Appetizer Tree” was way easier.  Hey, speaking of which…look who stopped by to say hello, and now I have my very own video to show you how to make the “Appetizer Tree”.  Please watch, I think you’ll enjoy!

I’m not going to let the “Appetizer Tree” steal the show again, let’s focus in on this pretty Hershey “Christmas Kiss Tree”, shall we?  This eye catching colorful chocolate tree could be used strictly for decoration, or if you’re invited to a Christmas party I think this would make a lovely hostess gift.  Oh, and of course it can be used as a dessert or appetizer at any adult Christmas gathering.

WARNING:  First, and foremost I want to make it clear that this is not for young children.  The reason being is that I used small pieces of toothpicks to stick the chocolate kiss into the foam cone.

Like I mentioned earlier, it was “fairly” simple to make, but took a little patience.  After unwrapping the styrofoam cone, I simply started at the top and worked my way down with the Hershey kisses in a “slanted row” kind of way. Of course you could make your’s any way you prefer.

I was actually very surprised to see that strong wood toothpicks push into the bottom of the chocolate kiss quite easily.  Then you just stick them on the cone where you want them.  I used 2 -11 ounce bags of the Christmas Hershey Kisses (on sale at Target) with red, green, and silver kisses.  I was thinking though…if you stuck with one color it would be gorgeous, too.

The star on top is a dollar store ornament that I sprayed with  a little adhesive, and then dipped in silver glitter.  Then, I stuck it into the tree.

I keep using that word…stuck 😳 .

Wait guys!  That’s not all you can do with styrofoam cones.  Apparently, I am a cone-head little obsessed with them, but I can’t help it.  There are just so many ways to decorate cones!

    I love all of your foodie trees, Julie! How fun would it be to make each of them for a party. Bam, cute and delicious. Thanks so much for sharing and just in case we don’t get a chance to “chat” again, a very Merry Christmas to you and your precious family. xoxo

  4. All your trees are so cute!

    Hi Julie. Cute ideas and the gumdrop tree brought back memories of my childhood. My mom had a plastic tree with branches wildly (and quite sharp) pointing every which way like a real tree. She would spear each pointed end with a gumdrop and it would sit in a place of honor in the living room. We couldn’t have any gumdrops until the tree had been seen by visitors for a while. Of course by then, the gumdrops were getting dried out from the air. We enjoyed them anyway, maybe having to suck on them a little to soften. New ones would fill the empty spots. Great Christmas memory. Blessings to you and yours.

    Your appetizer tree is making my mouth water. I probably shouldn’t be admiring it so close to dinner! Your other tree ideas are so cute. I’ve always wanted to make a gumdrop tree but after seeing your Hershey Kiss tree, I think that’s what I now want to make.

    Julie,
    I love your sweater and flannel trees. Such clever ways to repurpose a sweater or a flannel shirt. One could use scraps of ribbon, also, for the trees – or remnants of ribbon left on a roll after making a big one for your Christmas wreath! I have made the appetizer trees for over 40 yrs, so they are beautiful as well as a delightful way to serve appetizers or crudites. Thanks for sharing your super ideas!

    I love all of your trees, they are gorgeous and edible!!

  10. All of these are super cute Julie! I think I am going to try the kissses one for Christmas! 🙂 xo
