Tree Candy Ornament




This is an easy little decoration, or take home gift, or hospital/nursing home gift. And you can make it whatever size you want by enlarging or minizing your pattern (just don't go over 12 inches wide). It was introduced to me first by Yvonne Balmer.
I taped mine together with sticky strip to make sure it would be strong enough to hold the candies. But if you were just doing it for decoration, or putting something lightweight inside, you could use Snail adhesive.
Make sure your folds are crisp, and that you cut the holes for the ribbon or string before you clue it all together. Then decorate as you wish. It holds from 8 to 12 candies depending on the size of candy.
Have fun!
