This is a great craft to do with kids! Use Hershey's kisses and Rolos to make a Christmas Tree garland! SO easy!

A couple weeks ago, my daughter was sitting at the table with me while I was working. She had a whole pile of Hershey’s Kisses chocolates and Rolos spread out in front of her, and, like any good kid, she was piling them on top of each other and building things.

Oh, yes, and also sneaking quite a few. She’s nothing if not true to her age!

After about 10 minutes of her doing this, she held up a Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate that she had stacked on top of a Rolo, and squealed, “Look what I made!”

Now if you’ve been around kids any amount of time, you know that usually that statement is followed by some kind of creation that doesn’t look much like anything. But this, I squealed right back, “It’s a Christmas tree”!!

Look how adorable they are!! It’s a perfect little garland of Christmas trees made using some of our favorite candies.

And truly, isn’t that what the holiday season is all about?! Sitting around with your family, creating and talking and helping to inspire each other! While I love my fancier faux evergreen garland for our stairs, I love the togetherness of this craft. And I adore that my daughter came up with the base of this craft, and then together we elaborated upon it.

You know who else loves that? My daughter! Every time somebody stops by, she points to the garland and is sure to let them know that she thought of it!

This really is simple to make with just a few key ingredients:

Supplies:
Hershey’s Kisses chocolates in the green foil wrapper

Rolos in green foil wrapper

Hot glue gun

Baker’s twine

Black construction paper (optional)

Silver Sharpie (optional)

Step 1: Put a small dab of hot glue on the bottom of a Rolo and lay the baker’s twine right across the glue. Be sure your glue dot is centered on your Rolo.

Step 2: Place a Hershey’s Kisses chocolate right on top of the glue dot. The baker’s twine should be sandwiched in between the two.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 as you move down your twine until you have your garland the length you choose.

Step 4: This step is optional. If you would like a garland, cut pennant shapes from your black construction paper and use hot glue to adhere to your twine. Write a message with your Sharpie.

Just attach it to the surface you want to display it on! We picked a wood slice.
