I got the tree slices from amazon.com, but I also found some on save-on-crafts.com. I used some Restoration Hardware candle sticks that I found at Goodwill years ago as the stands. I almost painted the candle sticks white but I ended up liking the silver with the white wood.
I used some left over interior flat paint mixed with a little water to paint the tree slices.
Here's one holding butterscotch nests!
I'm really happy with how they turned out, and they looked great on the dessert table!
