7 Days of Christmas: Day 5 - Kid-Friendly Christmas Tree Craft

This is a fun craft to do with kids of almost any age. Theses ice cream cones go perfectly with a ginger bread house, but they also make a great craft by themselves! They are perfect for little hands, and are much easier to assemble than a gingerbread house. As with many of the DIY projects I feature, this was inspired by a pin on Pinterest (check it out here).

What You Need

I forgot to picture the green food coloring. You can use a much
greater variety of candies, if you desire.

  • Sugar Cones (the pointy ones)
  • Vanilla or Cream Cheese Frosting (lighter colored frosting will be easier to turn green)
  • Green Food Coloring 
  • Assorted Candy (we used M&M's Pull-n-Peel Twizzlers, Gum Drops, & some spare candy from our gingerbread house kit)


  • Add green food coloring to frosting, 1 or 2 drops at a time, until desired green is achieved.
  • Place the Sugar Cones upside-down and frost them until they look somewhat like green trees. Young children may need help with this part.
  • Decorate your Christmas trees with candy!
