Have great fun making these sweet tree centrepieces for any occasion..read the guide below to help you and please note how we recommend constructing a sweet tree.  Or click here to watch some amazing short DIY sweet tree Youtube videos.

A step-by-step guide :-

To make a giant floor standing sweet candy tree - use a 150mm ball or 200mm solid poly ball with an 18mm or 21mm longer length dowel for the sweet tree trunk and a 5" or 6" bucket/pot at the base.

To make a medium sweet tree to stand on a table, like the photos sent in by Linzi Daly (of www.facebook.com/candytreegrove) a 100mm or 120mm ball with a 15mm or 18mm dowel (30cm long) and a 4" pot/bucket;

For mini sweet trees use a ball less than 100mm tall, with our mini 3" or even tiny 2" bucket and a 9mm or 12mm dowel. Of course you can use any polystyrene / styrofoam shape for this project - we have a massive selection!

How to assemble a sweet tree :-

1) Put some strong glue onto the end of your dowel/stick and push it into your polystyrene shape.  You may want to make a hole in the polystyrene first to ease the dowel in place.

2) Take your pot/bucket (our buckets are beautifully finished and perfect for sweet trees).  Stand the dowel (with the ball on top) in the centre of the bucket/pot.  Pour the mixed casting plaster into the bucket. It should fill the bucket to about 1/3 full.  Hold the dowel in place until the plaster sets (you can then cover the plaster with something pretty like gravel etc or wrapped sweets and wind ribbons around the dowel to decorate).

3) Cover the balls with cling film or attractive tissue / decoupage paper of your choice and attach the sweets using cocktail sticks or if the sweets are wrapped, you can use a hot melt glue gun to stick them straight onto the covered ball.  You can also use our polystyrene cones and rings in a similar way.

For Cupcake bouquets we recommend a 15cm ball pushed into a 6" bucket as your starting point and attach the cupcakes, in their cases in a similar way, to the covered ball.
