Gather necessary materials. This would consist of foam cone things, toothpicks and gumdrops. Copious amounts of gumdrops. Also a large cup of coffee for Mama. That one is a deal breaker.
Break toothpicks in half (at least). Randomly poke into floral cone thing. Poke gumdrop onto toothpick. Be sure to taste each of the colors before starting, not sure why, but seems to make process more enjoyable.
Listen to holiday music and poke, poke, poke. Boogie Woogie Santa Claus is ideal gumdrop tree making music, by the way.
Display gumdrop trees proudly! Ignore gaps, see the bigger picture. (Plus we ran out of gumdrops.)
Next project...a gingerbread house. Ahem. This may require several cups of coffee for Mama.
