As soon as I spied these straws, I knew exactly what I would make with them. That was in August.
Their wood grain immediately had me thinking Christmas tree farm and the idea eventually became a classroom treat!
First gather up your little trees, any design you please…
I used my wonderful FooDoodlers to help with the details of the sign and the Christmas tree faces. Edible markers make things easy peasy!
To assemble the tree trunks, cut the straws in half and put a squirt of icing on the back of each cookie. While the icing is wet, stick the straw into it. Dry them over night to make sure the trunks stay put.
Personalizing the trees with each student’s name would be a great alternative to a face, but you know I can’t stay away from a sweet little face…so faces it is!
I can’t wait to share these with my son’s class! Thankfully, he’s still young enough to need classroom treats. 🙂
