Gee, I didn't think to look further on their website for guidance... thanks for finding that and passing it on. I can't wait to make one of these!!!

Sorry I've taken so long to get back to all that replied. I really appreciate your help. I went out and bought the styrofoam but I agree that it seems too light. So I am now going to look out for a twig tree. I have already made the cookies just need to bag them and get them on a tree. Thankyou again!

Have you looked at this site? I'm still debating. It has a lot of wire trees as well as other shapes. I was thinking about getting the stork or umbrella for baby showers. They come unpainted, but should be easy to spray paint.

Have you thought about gluing the styrofoam onto a block of wood? Or some similar base? That would make it plenty sturdy.

Oh my goodness! I went to the site and those "trees" are just so cute! Now I'm REALLY excited about my next cookie class! We are doing Christmas Ornaments AND Christmas Lights! How CUTE would one of these trees be?

Okay, Okay, mind racing, mind racing! Not enough caffeine yet to think clearly!

Leannsloan-

The prices on that website said $180 for a 2' tree with 4 dozen cookies, $90 for a 1 1/2' tree with 18 cookies....

Yup..been looking everywhere for a reasonably priced grapevine tree and i can't find them anywhere! the only ones i saw were HUGE ones at peir one, it would take hundreds of cookies to cover that thing. I looked at michaels, canadian tire, walmart...i'm getting frustrated. Where do you all buy them?

If you add the cost of the tree, scissors, ribbon and of course, cookies -- it's really not too bad a price, especially for the impact. Plus, the customer gets to keep the tree which is very decorative.

I can't find any trees locally, but I did find these sites. They also sell lights with brown cords. Surely she's getting her trees from a wholesaler.

I would love to find a reason to try this. icon_biggrin.gif
