Hi all,
I remember a post a short while back about displaying bagged cookies on a tree, I know one of our CC members here had a few pictures of her cookis on display for her booth at shows. ( I think her DH made it for her) Does anyone remember who that was or where to get a tree to do this with. I know about the grapevine tree, but not sure how to attach them. I liked the idea the CC member had, tying them to the tree with ribbon.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have a communion and a baby shower next week and would love to use this kind of display!

Thanks in advance

i guess that would be me. a friend welded one for me. i haven't really seen anything out there.
i tried to get a hold of these people to see about having something made just for me...http://tmarco.com/categories.htm
i haven't heard back from them.
i did another show last month and covered the tree in cookies from around the world. i'm having trouble posting that pic.

kneadacookie, your tree is DARLING!!! thumbs_up.gif I love it!
Photomommie, Yes there was a thread before the CC crash. Someone posted a website that sells display trees. Here is a link to it.....http://tmarco.com/trees.htm. I want to do one in a couple of weeks for a birthday party, and have been looking at garden trellis'....Obelisk type that are placed in pots for plants to grow on at Hobby Lobby among other places. If kneadacookie could give us some suggestions as to how to tie them, it would be greatly appreciated. icon_biggrin.gif HTH

Oh gosh....I now realize that is the same place that kneadacookie is trying to work with. Oh well....they sell some that are already made. Would one of these not work?

For some reason, I remember in the old thread before the crash that somebody used Tomato cages from the dollar store.

I bought a white wire stand from Pier 1 before Easter. It was to hang 12 Easter egg ornaments on it. I hung 12 cookies from it, but I didn't take a picture. It stands about 15" tall, with a round metal base, sort of like those stands you clip photos on. Anyway, maybe Pier 1 still has some left marked down. It can't be used for a huge display, but cute as a smaller centerpiece. Could dress up the bottom with fabric or ribbon. HTH someone!

You can make a nice âtreeâ using recycled coat hangers.
I saw these at a craft sale. They have potential, with modifications, to be a nice cookie display base.

I bought a tomato plant cage at Lowe's. It was the cone shaped. My DH attached the pointed ends that are supposed to go in the ground with wire. I used florist wire to wrap it with for added hanging since the rows of wire are spaced. I then spray painted it dark gray to sort of camouflage it. It's a large cone but it works well.

I'm sure there is a better way but this works for me for now.

I too remember the lost thread. However, I think someone suggested using grapevine trees as an alternative. Here is a link for that http://www.grapevinecreations.com/grapevinecreations/index.htm
Another suggestion was to use the stands that they hang earrings and necklace from. We have a resale shop that sells them really cheap. Here is another website that shows a picture of what can be done with those stands. This is not the website I was looking for, but it will give you an idea.

One last thought is to make your own using the old fashion metal 3 prong dish cloth stands mounted to a wood display stand. It really would work, but may sound far fetched. HTH
