O Christmas Tree, How Crappy Are Your Branches

With my tendency to eat an entire gallon of ice cream in one sitting, I can see how a person could be left with a box of empty ice cream cones, wondering what to do with them now that all the Chocolate Chip Crunch was gone.

One idea that’s especially crafty during the holidays is to disguise your cones as Christmas trees – that way people don’t start asking a lot of nosy questions, like, “Hey, why do we have all these pointy waffle cones and NO ICE CREAM?”

She Knows has a great plan for turning them into edible Christmas trees – all you need to do is spread some icing on the outside (white for a “snowy” tree, green for a traditional tree and blue if that’s all you have left over from your toddler’s Cookie Monster birthday cupcakes) and slap on some candy “ornaments.”

How hard could that be?

Repeat craftfailer Anna of Random Handprints shows us that success isn’t necessarily guaranteed…

Ooh, that might be a little heavy on the ornaments. Maybe we can try what I do when the real tree is a little imbalanced, and just turn it around to the back…

Or… maybe just try a completely different tree?

I asked, and yes, the star atop this Tannenbaum is indeed a Froot Loop. HOW FESTIVE! I think we have a winner!

    I like the fails better on this one!! They look more festive than the original.

    These look like they were done by kids? We did this in kindergarten, and that was like 25 years ago, so the concept’s been around a while. Anyhow, if they were indeed a children’s craft, I wouldn’t call them a fail… actually, even though they might look a bit wonky, I’ll bet they still make a sweet treat.
