These lolly trees makes great presents.


  • 1 polystyrene ball
  • 1 stick or icy pole stick
  • 20-30 pins


  1. Push the stick half way threw the ball to make a trunk for your tree. Layer the bottom of your pot with clay to hold your trunk in place and this will hold the weight of the tree.
  2. Starting from the middle of the ball use pins to start layering your lollies. It's best to go around the ball. You continue until your ball is filled.
  3. Decorate your pots and fill in any little spaces left with bows or ribbons.

Notes... I made these for all my nieces and nephews for Christmas.
