Every year my kids want to make a gingerbread house for Christmas. While they’re a lot of fun, they can get crumbly and stale really fast. Plus, each one of my kids has a different idea of how it should look. That’s when I decided to come up with this fun alternative.

These sugar cone Christmas trees are a great alternative to the messy gingerbread houses! They can still make a fun craft filled with all of their favorite candies without the arguing. Each child can decorate their cone shaped tree however they like. And when it’s time to eat it, they don’t have to fight over who gets the last gumdrop. Not only do they taste delicious, they are super simple to put together. Tip a waffle cone upside down, cover it with green frosting, and then decorate it with candy “ornaments”! Fun, right?

How To Make A Sugar Cone Christmas Tree

These delicious Christmas tree sugar cones are such a fun activity and super easy to make. Here’s how to make them:

  1. Prep The Sugar Cone – First, if your sugar cones are slanted, as mine were, you will have to level them. Carefully break away the taller part of the cone so it will stand up straight when tipped over. If you prefer to use waffle cones, those work great too.
  2. Frosting – If you’re using with frosting with green food coloring, mix in a few drops at a time until you reach the desired shade of green. One you have green frosting, cover your sugar cones with it so they start to look like a Christmas tree.
  3. Licorice Tinsel – Wrap your licorice around the tree to look like a strand of lights or tinsel.
  4. Ornaments – Decorate the rest of your sugar cone tree by sticking small candies to the frosting so that it looks like Christmas ornaments. Add different shapes and sizes of candy so that it looks just like your Christmas tree.
  5. The Star – Top your sugar cone Christmas tree with a yellow gum drop for the traditional star. Then enjoy!
