Crafty Christmas Snack Celery Trees

So I'm new to Pinterest but it has been fun and helpful looking for Christmas type snacks. I saw lots of posts for trees using green grapes or green olives but I didn't have either nor did I want to spend the money to buy some when I had perfectly good celery going on the verge of getting chopped and frozen. So first I made a snow scene with cream cheese. Then I sliced all the celery in half length wise and then in half width wise, it's easier for my boys to eat this way and makes a better tree too. Then I cut a star out of cheese and a cheese trunk (but I'm not sure why I did that now) and cut up turkey pepperoni to be the ornaments. Plus I added little footprints to the cream cheese because I love the book The Snowy Day and it reminded me of it.
Dylan ate all the pepperoni before Lincoln woke up from his nap but I gave him more later. Both of the boys actually ate it up. Also instead of "ants on a log" with the traditional celery, peanut butter and raisins, sometimes we make spiders on a stump or some other silly name with celery, cream cheese and dried cranberries. It is yummy since I'm not a huge peanut butter fan myself. I bet the pepperoni could easily be replaced by dried cranberries or even M&Ms or something more colorful.
