Before You Build Your Mini Topiary Tree
Tips Before You Start
- If you’re creating a 6″ topiary tree, you’ll use mainly mini marshmallows.
- If you’re creating an 8″ or 10″ tree, you can use a combination of both regular and mini marshmallows.
- For a 12″ tree you can see here how I created mine with a base of regular marshmallows, adding mini in between.
- For a 16″ topiary tree you will want to use mega marshmallows.
- When using mega marshmallows, you might want to cut them in half. Otherwise, they stick out a bit too much.
Working with Kids to Create a Topiary Tree
- Getting children involved in craft projects is a wonderful way to bring families together during the holidays.
- Depending on the age of the children, parents might want to help.
- We recommend breaking the toothpicks in half and putting them in the cone for young ones.
- They can have fun adding the marshmallows and decorating their marshmallow topiary tree.
- Team up with children to make it easy and fun for all.
- Get super creative and provide all kinds of choices to add whimsical touches to their mini Christmas tree.
- Think gingerbread house: candy, colorful, and fun.
- Children love the chance to create.
