Make a festive centerpiece for your Christmas party using Wonderful Halos. DIY Halos Tree and Presents
what you'll need:
- wonderful halos mandarins
- small cake stand or platter
- adhesive dots
- snips of greenery (such as arborvitae, boxwood, or pine)
- ribbon or twine
- tags (optional)
To make the first row: Place an adhesive dot on the bottom of a Wonderful Halos mandarin and adhere it to the center of your cake stand. Place glue dots on the bottom of six more Halos mandarins and place them on the cake stand to surround the one in the center.
To make the second row: Grab 7 more Halos mandarins and place glue dots on the sides of six mandarins to adhere them in a ring around the others. Place a few glue dots on the mandarins in the first row and place the new row on top, turned, so that the rows are staggered.
To make the third row: Use 5 toothpicks to poke 5 Halos mandarins together into a circle and place on top.
To make the fourth row: Use 3 toothpicks to poke 3 Halos mandarins together into a triangle, and place on top.
To make the top: Poke a piece of greenery into the top of a single Halos mandarin and place it on top.
To make presents: Tie thin ribbons or twine around a Halos mandarin and knot. Tuck in a little sprig of greenery. Tie a tag to your Halos mandarin present and use it as a place card!
I have fun making this but it was just as much fun giving them away as presents and eating them. I also realized I am not the best crafty girl around but it was so relaxing to try to make this.
