ROCK CANDY CHRISTMAS TREES

I just had to post these great Christmas trees made by my friend, Jan, from McKinney, Texas.  We've done a lot of crafting together through the years and it's hard to be apart at Christmas when great project possibilities are everywhere!  She sent me these photos of trees she made with rock candy, hot glue, and some paper covered styrofoam cones.  (Don't try using hot glue directly on the styrofoam - the cones will melt.)  Aren't they beautiful?  
Jan purchased the other trees at Hobby Lobby, but we think they're probably very make-able too!  I think a little heavyweight watercolor paper is a possibility.  Or maybe some paper mache pulp and a leaf shape cookie cutter.  Felt?  Any other ideas?






 Tomorrow night is craft night at my house.  Five friends will be here working on some of the ornaments I blogged about here.  So I'll be taking lots of pictures and putting them on the blog in a day or two.  Check back soon . . .
