Materials: Ceramic Flower Pot, Styrofoam,  12” long of 1” thick orange ribbon, thin orange and black ribbon, Halloween candy, 18” long 1” thick dowel, Five  3/16 x 36” dowels, Floral moss,  floral wire, black spray paint, and a drill set.

This Candy tree can be a fun addition to an office or great table decorations for a Halloween party!
Step 1: Insert floral foam into clay pot, Make sure it fits snuggly.
Step 2: Take your 12” long orange ribbon and wrap it around the pot and tie a bow, hot glue gun in place.
Step 3:  Take a marking pencil and evenly draw 5 lines lengthwise down the dowel. 8” from bottom  on the first line, mark where the first dowel will go.  On next line make the next mark ½” up from the last. Continue in this spiral fashion up the dowel.
Step 4:  Pick up that Drill and a 1/16 bit and drill a pilot hole in each marking at a 45 degree angle. After making the pilot holes pick up that 3/16” bit and go over the pilot holes for a clean go.
Step 5: Take the 3/16 x 36” Dowels and cut them down to 7” long pieces and insert them into the drilled holes.
Step 6: Spray paint the “tree” black and let dry
Step 7: You will need to drill a hole into the foam in the flower pot to be able to fit the tree. Make sure you don’t drill to much foam out it needs a snug fit.
Step 8: Decorate the Halloween candy by tying black and orange bows onto the candy wrappers. Tack down the ribbons with hot glue so they won’t fall apart.
Step 9: Now that the tree is dry insert it into the flower pot.
Step 10:  Cover the foam in the flower pot with floral moss.
Step 11: Take floral wire and slide it under the ribbon on candy and attach to the tree limbs, FINISHED!
