Dumb Dumb Tree For Back To School

Dumb Dumb Tree

This year Troy's teacher really wanted something to hold some candy in her classroom.  So I googled some ideas and came up with this.  Below are step by step instructions on how to do this and it is super easy.  

By a pot.  They have several different sizes.  They even have ones that are already painted if you do not already have paint.  This pot was .50 cents and I already ahd the paint so it was cheaper.  

If you want to buy paint or already have some this is the paint that I would recommend.  I painted it twice and it looked perfect.

Then you need to buy a foam ball.  You can buy these just about anywhere including walmart which is where I got this one.  They also sell them at Hobby Lobby and Micheals.  Make sure you get one that fits the pot that you are getting.  It needs to be a little bigger then the pot.  

Then you simple buy a large bag of Dumb Dumbs and stick the sticks into the foam ball.  You do this all the way around your foam ball.  Leave an empty space at the bottom of the foam ball so that the ball can sit in the pot.  And here is what it will look like.  

Pretty simple huh?  And this project might have cost me $15.00.  You can paint the pot whatever color you want and you can even put the teachers name in the pot if you wanted to.  I just kept it simple.
