Make Candy Ornaments for Festival of Trees

Help us create whimsical Willy Wonka themed ornaments for the Serve KC Tree donation to benefit Johnson County Christmas Bureau.  Our tree will be auctioned off during the Festival of Trees in early November along with trees, wreaths and other holiday decorations.  We will decorate the tree on Nov. 1st, but need help making the ornaments 1st.

We’ve selected Wonka’s Golden Ticket as our theme with colorful candy decorations.  Sunday we’ll be working on giant gumdrops & colorful candies for the tree.  Please select one of the items listed below to help share the costs for supplies.
