Not only can you hang your sweets on the christmas tree, you can add them to the walls too.
Sounds strange? Buy some coloured card and roll them into cones, use a hole punch to punch a hole in the top of the cone. Tie ribbon through the hole and hang on the wall. Then fill them with sweets, nuts, small toys or even small liqueur bottles.
They look great and don't cost a fortune, they can even be hung from the tree. For a christmassy theme use glitter or wrap with tinsel. If you want to use it for the rest of the year, use coloured card that matches your decor, then fill with dried flowers.
Any colour, any size, any design. The kids have made different sizes to use for different items, and as they match the walls we'll put something else in them after christmas, or the kids can use them in their rooms.
