Tutorial – lace trees

IMG_3568

I thought I’d stop by quickly to share this lace tree tutorial. I was inspired by the lace doilies I made earlier this year and wanted to make something similar with a winter-y twist. They are quite easy and quick to make and would be pretty as cupcake toppers or on top of a cake! For this tree I used a small, round piping tip but you can use any tips you like! Check out my lace doily tutorial here for inspiration! Here’s the tutorial!

You’ll need:

  • Small tree cutter
  • Exacto knife
  • Piping tips
  • Rolling pin
  • Gumpaste
  • Edible glue
  • Optional: caster sugar
  • Two books/boxes of the same height

1.. Roll out gumpaste thinly; about 1-2 mm thick.

2.. Cut out two trees and cut out a thin slot down half way down the center like in the picture. Put one of the trees in a zip-lock bag.

3.. Use the piping tip/tips to make a pattern on the first tree. Take out the second one and make the same pattern on that one. Leave them out to dry for about 10 minutes.

4.. Put some glue on the inside of each slot and put the two pieces together.

5.. Put the tree on the books/boxes until completely hardened.

6.. If you want, you can now brush the edges with glue and dip in caster sugar, for some extra sparkle!

Hope you enjoyed this tutorial, and good luck!

  1. Ok… Nu testar jag igen. Förra kommentaren bara försvann… Eller så får du dubbelt.
    Vilken söt julgran! Du är så himla påhittig, så kul att titta in till dig.
    Vad kul att du blev nöjd med objektivet. Jag älskar min med som sagt. Det finns ju säkert bättre men inte till det priset.
    Ha en riktigt skön andra advent!
    Kram
