I'm sure some of you are thinking what the heck is a jellybean tree? Well, I guess you could also refer to these as Jellybean Pussy Willow Branches. It doesn't matter what you call them, they are my newest and most favorite spring decoration!
The best part about these beauties is they are easy peasy to make. My kind of project!
A cool temp glue gun
I would not use a high temp one. The cool temp will melt the jellybeans a little bit, so I think using a full heat would be a messy, sticky mess.
Lifesaver or Laffy Taffy Jellybeans
These 2 brands have pastel colored candies, so they look the best.
Apple tree branches
These branches have little nobbies on them (is nobbies even a word) so you are able to have little nitches and nooks to glue the jellybeans.
A sturdy vase or container
The how to is pretty simple.
1-put your branches in your container. You will want to make sure that they are where you want them before you glue them. You are not going to want to move your sticks around a lot once you have glued them on. They don't travel too well.
2- Turn on a movie or gather some friends and get to gluing.
I must give a warning though...it's a messy project.
A messy project is my favorite kind of project! These Jellybean branches were simple to make, but I really do love them! I hope that you will try them. I think that you will love them too!
I would love for you to stay in touch..
