Christmas is just around the corner! Have you started thinking ahead to Christmas dinner? If you have kids, you might want to have something extra special waiting for them at the table. I created this simple Christmas table craft in just a few minutes and they are so easy that even the kids can help make them!
Hershey’s Kisses Tree
- Green paper
- Bag (or two) of Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates
- Glue Dots
- Pen or pencil

Aren’t these Kissmas Sweater themed Hershey’s Kisses so cute? The Hershey Company continues to create ways to make the season more festive by using inspired takes on their timeless classics.
Directions: 1.Pull out all of the green Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates and set them on top of the green paper in a tree pattern. I used 4 on the bottom, stacking them to one on top, for a total of 10 per tree. 2. Then trace around the candy and cut out a template.
It should look something like this… (It won’t be perfect, but you are covering it anyway!)
3. Once you have a template, cut out one per place setting. 4. Then add a glue dot to the bottom of each Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate and attach it to the cutout.
The finished “tree” should look like this… (I added an extra piece of candy at the bottom just to help it stand up.)
You can either use it “as is” or add a star and tree skirt.
For the star, you can either use the under side of a wrapper or a piece of tin foil. Just cut it into a star shape and place it at the top of the tree.
For the tree skirt, carefully unwrap a red Hershey’s Kisses Chocolates and cut around the pattern. Put it at the bottom of the tree and add the opened Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate on top.
Whether you’re throwing an ugly sweater bash or snuggled on the couch watching a move, a bowl of Hershey’s Kisses Kissmas Sweater Chocolates are sure to put a smile on your face. The Hershey Company’s seasonal products are sold exclusively at Walmart and are must-haves for your holiday occasions. These candies always make me think of my Memaw. She used to have, what she called a “silver bell,” as her dessert after dinner most nights and I get a little nostalgic when I see them!
Tip: You could also turn these into present toppers. Just make sure to leave the “trunk” wrapped!
The Hershey Company will offer several festive treats exclusively at Walmart this holiday season that will inspire new ways to deck the halls and trim the tree, including these limited-edition “ugly sweater” foils on the classic Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Miniatures in holiday foils, a three-pound Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, giant Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates and a one-pound Reese’s Peanut Butter Santa, allowing you to make your season extra-merry. They make great gifts for family and friends too!
