Hershey's Christmas Tree Simplified

In 2012 I came up with my very first Hershey's design: The Hershey's Christmas Tree. Little did I know that I would be making 50 various projects using Hershey's Kisses and Nuggets WITH MORE TO COME. There is still something magical about this very first tree that started it all AND everyone who saw the potential in more shapes long before I did. I'm grateful for you.

This is a simplified version of my Updated Hershey's Christmas Tree. You will find this version uses less card stock and is faster to make than before (thanks to some tips from an anonymous blog follower). Above you will find a FREE VIDEO tutorial. Below you will find a PRINTABLE tutorial. All the supplies you'll need for this project are available for purchase HERE!

Hershey's Christmas Trees make great little Christmas gifts!!

Free Tutorial with order!!
Place a $15* order in my online store and you will get a FREE tutorial from me. I have lots of Hershey's tutorials to choose from. See all your choices HERE!
I will give you the Christmas Tree Printable Version as a bonus tutorial in addition to your other tutorial choice when you order (no substitutions).

PS: Instructions for the simplified original tree trunk using two Hershey's Nuggets can be found in my printable tutorial. Nuggets provide a slightly more stable platform for the tree, whereas the Rolo bases are much faster.


Would you like my video tutorial in step-by-step form?
This is a 6-page step-by-step photo tutorial (8 pages total including the title page, time saver steps, supplies and recommendations). The printable version also contains my simplified original tree trunk with Hershey's nuggets in addition to the Rolo tree trunk. It's available below for only 99 cents (normally my printable versions are $4.99). This was my first Hershey's tutorial, so I'm pricing it less than my other ones as a special thank you to my customers.

  1. Thank you Brenda, for such a darling tutorial. I can't wait to make these for my grandchildren! I appreciate your creativity, time, and your willingness to share.

  2. Just when you think it can't get any do it again! I have made these trees before and love them. Will try the new and improved version.

    Thanks, Brenda!

  3. I LOVE your Christmas trees! I have given so many of them away--everyone is so impressed by them! I can't wait to try the new and improved version!

  4. God I absolutely adore these apart from the fact I can't make them because I'm not american and the measurements aren't in metric!! :(

    1. I'm sure the measurements could be converted, but you would also need a supply of Hershey's Kisses. In the UK, Hershey's Kisses are available on Amazon. I grew up with the metric system, but in the US, we have to work in inches.
