My parents recently traveled to east coast and called me while they were inside Paula Deen’s store. I was instantly jealous and wanted them to buy me one of everything. My mom called and ask if I would like some marshmallow on a stick decorations for my christmas tree. That instantly gave me the idea to make a S’more christmas tree this year and here is the finished product!

Part of this idea also came from when my son was insanely sick last week. I was running on no sleep and when he would wake up in the middle of the I would have a hard time going back to sleep so I would basically dream about this tree, haha!

I could not find the marshmallow decorations on Paula Deen’s website so I assume they are only avable in store but I did find one that looks just like them on amazon: Marshmallow on Red Striped Roping Christmas Tree, Wreath, Mantle Garland, 6 Feet Long.

For the marshmallows on a stick, I found these that are similar here!

For the large marshamallow on top I bought 2 of these dummy cake rounds, hot glue them together, painted them white then put some red glitter on top. I stick a stick in the bottom of the round, and zip tied it to the tree. I used a stick from a tree in our yard so it would blend in with the Christmas tree. 
 

For the “graham crackers”, I used postal paper. It was maybe $3 at walmart. I cut a large strip in half. Then used a tape measure to draw a line down the middle of the paper, then added dots like you would see on a graham cracker. Then just draped it around the tree.

For the chocolates hanging on the tree, I used hershey’s chocolates, both large and small. I have a ton of extra burlap so I cut some burlap in strips and hot glued the burlap to the backs of the Hershey’s and hung them on the tree.

The small bars were kind of hard to find but you can get these on Walmart.com.

I bought my metal galvanized tree collar from Joanna Gaines line from target. You can get it in store or online here.

For the campfire pillow set, I made them myself. I have seen them online but I wanted mine to be jumbo size. 

You can order a set, The Smore the Merrier Campfire Set if you don’t want to make your own.Screen Shot 2017-11-29 at 6.42.50 PM
