I needed a prop for a christmas show where Gingerbread men would be on trays...so I cut out the men from cardboard, painted them brown, and hot glued white pipe cleaners and puff balls on as the decorations. Anything could be used as the decorations of course, but i only needed white. I also hot glued them to little stands that I used from plastic pitcher lids. I glued some magnets onto the bottom so they stick to the metal tray. :) Very simple to do.
