The base of this holiday craft center piece is basically a ceramic dish that is filled with candy. The dish only costs about $1.00 and after the candy is eaten, you could bake something in the dish!
The holiday candy that fills the ceramic dish consists of butterscotch hard candies and Andes mints. A small handful of butterscotch candies go into the ceramic dish first. On top of the butterscotch candies are neatly packed Andes mints. The Andes mints are red and green in color to look as if they are Christmas presents!
On top of the red and green Andes holiday candy mints stands a snowman or reindeer and one of two kinds of holiday trees which I will explain below.
The first thing I will describe is the reindeer and snowmen. Whichever one you prefer to use depends on what you would like your holiday center piece to look like.
There are two different types of snowmen used to make this holiday craft. The first snowman kit is a snowman with a scarf. The snowman is holding a sign that says “Let it snow!”. This holiday snowman kit is a foamtastic mini 3-D holiday fun craft. The kit consists of 2 foam tubes, 3 foam balls, 2 half eyes, 6 foam shapes, 4 pom poms, 2 chenille strips and 1 wire. This holiday craft is for ages 8+ and only costs $1.00.
The second holiday snowman kit is a snowman that is sitting on a sled. This holiday craft is also a foamtastic mini 3-D kit and is also for ages 8 +. Package contains 1 sled, 2 wiggle eyes, 2 chenille strips, 5 pom poms, 2 foam balls, and 10 foam shapes. This holiday craft is Around $1.00 and simple to make.
The last foamtastic holiday fun kit for that I will describe is a holiday reindeer. This craft kit is made for ages 6 + and costs around $1.00. The reindeer is featured sitting next to a fence with a holiday stocking hanging on the back of the fence. Package contains 4 foam tubes, 2 foam balls, 12 foam shapes, 2 wiggle eyes and 6 pom poms.
There are two different Christmas trees that were used to create these holiday craft centerpieces. The first Christmas tree is a metal tree that chimes. The kit contains 3 metal Christmas trees, a variety of different size holiday ornaments, and a ton of tiny key rings that hold the ornaments on the Christmas tree. This craft kit costs around $5.00 but contains three holiday trees.
The second Christmas tree is a bouncy holiday tree. The kit contains a long thin wire and several different size beads. The beads are red, white and green in color. This kit is simple to put together, but a little more time consuming due to the fact that the beads for the Christmas tree have to be separated. Separating the beads for the Christmas tree does make assembly easier.
Several different types of holiday craft kits could be used for higher number of tables at a Christmas or holiday party. If this center piece is only going on just 1 table, then only one snowman, or reindeer, and 1 type of Christmas tree is needed. This holiday craft doesn’t have to just be a center piece. The snowmen, reindeer, and Christmas trees can actually be used as ornaments too.
All together the Holiday center pieces cost around $5.00 to make. All the supplies for these holiday craft center pieces were purchased at AC Moore. If I was to buy Christmas or holiday center pieces that are already made, the price would most definitely be higher. So this holiday craft centerpiece is an inexpensive decoration that would be perfect for any Christmas or holiday party.
