Sweetie Tree Edible Party Decorations

Sweetie Flowere Trees

Just for a change from wooly projects I got together with a friend to create these fun sweetie trees. An edible decoration for a party, it was so much fun making them. First we had to enlist the skills of another to set the sticks into the plant pots.

Setting the Stick in the PotThe floral sticks are actually the handle for my dustpan and brush set but you could use bamboo sticks or wooden doweling rods decorated with ribbon, or you could even use paint to decorate with flowers. Our lovely friend used concrete to set them but I have done this before using plaster of paris. It is good to set your chosen stakes firmly to avoid any disasters.

We wrapped the metal rings we purchased from our local garden centre with ribbon to create a base to stick the little packets of sweetheart sweeties to then mounted the rings to the top of the sticks.

Wrapping the Wreath RingsFinally we added some bows to finish them off and covered the concrete with some white paper. These make fun decorations for a party whatever the age and it’s great as you can pull off the sweets and eat them.

    These are too cute! I too do other crafts other than my crochet, and I’m always looking for new ways to decorate for parties (5 boys and a large extended family makes for lots of parties each year). I’m going to do these in more boy colors, Should be fun!

    And thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope to see lots of you. 😀 ~Chris

      So glad you like them, you can do lots of different things once you have the principle in mind. For boys you could do a football theme if you could get hold of those little chocolate balls covered in football wrappers, or even wind jelly snakes around the wire frames. I would love to see what you come up with. Happy crafting.
