Jellybean Trees

You’ll Need
Styrofoam tree base
Green jellybeans (about 90 for a 6-inch tree)
Star candies
1 swirly lollipop

Styrofoam tree forms make the perfect bases for the jellybean trees. They come in a variety of sizes and are available at the local craft store. For your candy land display, start with both 6- and 8-inch forms. First, frost the forms with a white icing, and then cover each with green jellybeans from top to bottom. Once the tree is completely green, set it aside to dry for at least an hour. Ornament stars are glued on with icing, and the whirly lollipop tree topper is pushed down into the foam until it’s secure.
