Jelly Bean Tree Centerpiece plus Giveaway

For the last few months I’ve been enjoying making some DIY home decor that fits the seasons and holidays. There was the Valentine’s framed Key to My Heart and the Christmas Card Display board. For Easter and spring it’s no different. I created this adorable Jelly Bean Tree Centerpiece for the dining table.jelly bean tree centerpiece

I’m hoping it lasts till June honestly. For the week it’s been up I’ve lost 1 tiny branch holding 1 jelly bean and that’s because I hit it by accident.

Materials
vase, jar, flowerpot, basket
stabilizer for wide mouth container (styrofoam, marbles, dirt)
branches
jellybeans of your choice
glue gun
polyurethane spray (optional)

jelly beans

Directions
Clean off your branches of dead leaves, buds and dirt.

Spray with a clear coat. I did this to get rid of the dusty look but there is nothing wrong with leaving it the way it is.  You might be able to see that I use a paper towel roll to hold the branches but keep  my hands free of over spray.

Arrange your branches in their container. I rubber-banded mine together very low so they spread out slightly.

I keep these marbles on hand for just these kind of projects. They are strong enough to keep the centerpiece in place but it’s not permanent. A block of floral styrofoam would work well. This can be topped with shredded green paper or Easter grass too.

Using your hot glue gun add small dabs of glue to your branches.

Then add your jelly beans. Do this one at a time. Hot glue is the best option as it dries FAST and clear. I DO NOT suggest adding the glue to the jelly bean because of the small surface space and the risk of fingertip burns. I speak from experience.

I went with jelly beans that had a vibrant color, I actually don’t like the way these taste. Coordinate your home and tablescape with jelly beans of any hue or just one color.

This was created with a vase I already had on hand, marbles I’ve had for many years and branches off a bush that hasn’t bloomed yet in my side yard. My only expense was a bag of jelly beans and I didn’t even use the whole bag. I though about adding more to the branches but I thought it would start to look more like a child’s craft.

  1. This is adorable! I think my cats would eat the jellybeans, but it would look awesome for a few hours! ;)

  2. What an awesome idea. I “accidentally” bought too many jelly beans. Instead of eating them like I normally do when I accidentally buy too many…every year… I will make this!

  3. What a cute idea. I am going to pin this so that I remember to make it next year. We are traveling next weekend for Easter, so we won’t be needing it this year.

  4. This is really pretty, Melinda! What a fun craft. Lovely.

  5. I can’t stand the cuteness! And how easy this is…I have the glue gun, forsythia branches and jelly beans ready for when my kids get home from school! What a fun & functional Easter craft and decoration…Thanks!

  6. Super cute! I just bought a bag of Starburst jellybeans… this might keep me from eating them all on one go!

  7. Sweet! Literally, lol… I love how it came out, gorgeous.

  8. This is such a great idea. I would’ve never thought to make a Jelly Bean tree. My daughters would get a kick out of this!

  9. Candy O. says:

    Ahhh I love this craft!! A great centerpiece idea! I know I’d love making this jelly bean tree! Super cute!

  10. What a cute idea!! I don’t like jelly beans and neither does my daughter so this is a great way to “recyle” them (plus I finally bought a glue gun last month :)

  11. This is such a great craft. It makes a nice centrepiece in the home, but is also fitting for the Easter holiday – – Tracey @ Just a Trace

  12. What a cute Easter Arrangement! Love that! That would be fun to make with the kids. Of course I would do the hot glue gun :)

  13. That turned out super cute! What an easy Easter craft!

  14. That is a cute idea! Very nice decoration! Hope the kids don’t eat them with the glue

  15. This is such a cute idea for Easter. Do you have a dog? I really think that our dog would go to town on this after we went to bed. LOL

  24. Great craft idea! I have never tried gluing the jelly beans to the branches before. I’ve hung eggs on easter trees though.

  25. Well, now how stinking cute is that?! I love it! Kind of reminds me of a miniature tree with Easter Eggs. Super duper cute!! We have tons of branches out in the yard right now that we have to pick up. We might just have to make one of these!

  26. What a great idea for Easter. Our neighbors decorated their front tree w/plastic eggs when the weather was warm. Today that’s all covered w/snow, lol

    Ha – this is so cute. We made something similar for our wedding but they were white/sparkly.

  29. OMG I love this. Going out right now to get supplies!

  30. I have a mild jellybean addiction. And, this year I’m on a restrictive eating plan. I’ll have to make mine into an adorable tree like this!

  31. This is totally adorable! What a fun and frugal DIY idea for Easter.

  32. That is a cute (and easy!) idea! I’ll have to save it for when my youngest is older though. He would not stand idly by while there are jelly beans hanging in the air – glue or not! lol

  39. teresa mccluskey says:

    I don’t think I can have a jelly bean tree cause the jelly beans would be eaten before going on the tree! But way to cute!
