Candy trees


Having a crack at doing a candy tree, I had an old plant pot I used, a wooden dowel, plaster of paris, a polystyrene sphere and some green ribbon.

I didn’t quite have enough plaster in the one pictured above I only had a small amount left from a previous project and didnt want to wait a couple of days to order more so I made do. I would more or less fill the pot to the top with plaster when I do it again it gives more stability to the whole thing.

So it goes like this, mix the plaster, put it in the pot and put your dowel into the middle and hold it there for a few mins until it starts setting & holds itself (I painted mine white)

Use a screwdriver to drive a hole into the polystyrene sphere and then place the sphere onto the dowel.

I decorated mine by painting melted chocolate all over it and sticking the sweets down onto it, you can use any sweets and make your chocolate any colour with some white chocolate and food dye.

As a finishing touch I added some green ribbon around the dowel and cut out a green leaf shape
