DIY Christmas Gumball Tree Treats

This is a super easy treat to make for the Holidays - Gumball Trees! Who does not like gumballs? I know my children love gumballs and even more, the gumball machines! Gumballs are an inexpensive way to bring colors to your Holiday table!

Materials Needed:

* Gumballs
* A piece of Styrofoam
* Mini marshmallows
* Lollipop sticks
* A wooden skewer {to make holes in the gumballs}
* Paper cupcake cases
* Ribbon to decorate the trees


How to make them:

1) Using a skewer stick, poke a hole in the middle of each gumball as the picture shows.

2) Add as many gumballs as you would like or as your stick will hold, I made my tree using 3 gumballs. 
3) Insert the stick into the Styrofoam, add some mini marshmallows to cover, tie a ribbon and you are done!! So easy, right? Would make fabulous desserts table decorations or yummy party favors!
