Tried to copy a high end lollypop Christmas tree holder.
Cut 1" square wood stock into graduated lengths from 2.5" to 13"
Clamped square stock together to cut slight angles with table saw on either end to form graduated tree shape. Drilled a 0.5" hole through the center of each branch and bottom block. Drilled a 0.25" hole about a half inch from each end to hold pop stick. Cut 4x6 wood piece for base to be squared and at a slight angle, to replicate a pot shape. Run the wooden dowel rod down the middle holes of the branches and into the bottom block. Cut 0.5" spacers out of PVC to to place as spacers and separate the branches. Sand & Paint with exterior house paint colors as shown.
Showing are fake lollypops made with Skulpty clay, or just use real pops. Later I added the white wooden snoflake on top of the base.
