Christmas table centerpieces: Holiday Tree with Chocolate Coins
If you are looking for cute Christmas table centerpieces or crafts to make, then check out this fun and sparkly Candy Tree idea. Christmas is a magical holiday not only for kids but many adults. So it's not surprising that people want to bring magic to their places and lives this time of the year. You can do that in many ways but especially through homemade decorations and crafts.
To make holiday centerpieces like this one, you will need:
1. Make a base for your Christmas tree centerpiece.
Prepare a clean flower pot. In this example, it's a 4.5 inch at the top plastic pot 4 inch deep.
Prepare a piece of gold tissue paper or cellophane to wrap the container. Place the pot in the center of this piece. Wrap the container with the cellophane or tissue paper.
Tip: Put a rubber band or tie a piece of curling ribbon around the tissue paper or cello to hold it in place.
Then begin to fold the extra tissue paper or cellophane above the top of the pot inside the pot. Secure it to the inside using pieces of packaging tape.
Tip: If you use a light plastic container, to make it more stable, you can either use plaster of Paris or put some weight to the bottom of the container. For instance, some rocks in a zip-lock bag.
2. Cut a piece of floral foam and put it inside your container so that it fits tightly.
3. Take a floral foam or Styrofoam cone. In this example, it's a 3-7/8 x 8-7/8 inch cone.
Take a wooden dowel or a bunch of wooden skewers. Wrap it with brown or green sticky floral tape.
Insert the stick into the cone as shown in the picture.
4. Insert the cone into the foam in the pot.
5. Take a green Christmas garland. Secure one end of the garland to the top of the cone with a dab of hot glue. Start wrapping it around the cone securing it in several places with hot glue as you go.
6. Take chocolate coins. I found Christmas themed chocolate coins.
Secure the chocolates to the tree spacing them evenly around. Use a low temperature glue gun. Just place a dab or two of the glue to the top of the coin and then stick it to the tree.
7. The next step in making this Christmas craft project is to add a gold star (or angel) to the tree. You can easily find a star template on the internet. Take gold paper or card stock. Cut out two gold stars. Take a piece of wooden skewer or a toothpick. First, secure a piece of skewer to the back side of one of the star with hot glue or packaging tape. Then glue the second star on top of it. Thus, you disguise the skewer and your star looks good from front and back.
Insert the star into the top of the tree.
8. Cover the foam in the pot with gold Christmas garland or gold confetti.
9. The final step in making this Christmas table centerpiece is to decorate the pot as you wish. I attached a piece of wide green satin ribbon and then secured several store-bought green bows onto the ribbon.

I saw this centerpiece on the Internet and I loved it. It inspired me to create my own centerpiece.
This holiday tree has a different base.
