Looking for a last minute craft to do with the kids? Maybe something they can admire until Easter and then eat? See how you can make an Easter Egg Tree from Chocolate!
Easter Egg Tree from Chocolate
Chocolate is a favorite candy for many people. So, why not use it for a temporary decoration?
You can make several chocolate trees of different heights and colors. This would be perfect tabletop décor if you have accumulated more egg-shaped chocolates with colorful wrappers.
Materials Needed to Make an Easter Egg Tree from Chocolate
As with all crafts, gathering up your supplies before beginning is a must. There is nothing worse than getting part way through and having to scramble for something. If you are doing this with the kids, taking that time to run into another room for something could mean less chocolate to put on the tree. (Or maybe that’s just my house!)

• toilet paper roll
• hot glue
• a pack of egg-shaped chocolate candies that are wrapped
Steps to Make Your Easter Egg Tree
Form the cardboard into a cylinder cone. Hot glue the ends.
Cut the cone to your desired height.
Hot glue the toilet paper roll at the bottom of the cardboard cone.
Stick the egg chocolate on the bottom part of the cone first. This should be oriented in a slanting manner to get better results.
Continue doing this until you totally cover the cone all the way to the top of the cardboard tree. Make sure to alternately glue the egg chocolate pieces based on the colors of their wrapper. This will help to make it more appealing.
Cut the pointed end of the tree cardboard using a pair of scissors.
Carefully insert one egg-shaped chocolate on the topmost hole made in step 7. Hot glue this topmost egg chocolate.
Finally done! You can now display your sweet Easter egg chocolate tree in your tabletop.
Making an Easter egg chocolate tree is a fun activity, just make sure that you can resist the chocolates while making it. Enjoy and have fun with your friends and family!
Does your family enjoy crafting for holidays like Easter?
Would your kids try to eat the chocolates before the tree was finished?
