Having Christmas Neutral Activities is Important
Sugar plums are a common theme for the holidays. However, because you may have some guests at your holiday parties that do not celebrate Christmas, they can also use this Christmas tree craft project to make something for their kitchen. Christmas party guests also like to have crafts that allow them to use their own creativity. For this reason, designate one table to be a craft smorgasbord.

The idea is that your Christmas party guests can use these same supplies to make two basic projects. The end result is imitation handmade deserts or spheres covered with the same decorations. Both of these ideas are very much in vogue for the winter of 2010. You can gather various information and pictures to print out from the internet by searching for similar candy Christmas Crafts associated with Styrofoam balls projects.
In general – Adults don’t need as many directions as kids. They just need a general idea of the ideal end result and the supplies. This can be facilitated with examples you make before the party or pictures of similar Christmas Tree Crafts from the internet. Part of the fun is making mistakes and figuring out how to make one yourself.
For Everyone – If someone wants to make a colorful candy covered sphere for the centerpiece of their dining room table, you can provide them with inexpensive pedestals that you find at home and garden or crafting stores.
For Christmas Trees – If someone wants to use them for the tree, they simply need to attach bead that has a hole onto the top of their created confection. Using a bit of thread or a ornament hanger, you can attach the ornament to a Christmas tree when it is dry.
You will need the following supplies:
• Several Packages of Styrofoam Balls (7″ are fun for centerpieces)
