This issue is on what to do when you have an ambitious plan to stick dozens of real cranberries to a foam cone and/or sphere.
Step 1: Forget ambitious plan
Step 2: Do something else which is easier and just as pretty.
I purchased a set of three thick paper cones for about £3.50 and thought I would hot glue some cranberries on them but once I got the cones, they seemed a little thin to actually get big berries on so hmmmm... *scratches chin*
Step 1: Find a large-ish box
Step 2: Lay large-ish box on side and put on the kitchen counter
Step 3: Place 1 cone inside the box (or all three! What the hell... live dangerously!)
Step 4: Spray cone with silver spray paint, let dry.
Step 5: Spray with glue
Step 6: Try to roll the cone into some epsom salts laid out on a paper plate
Step 7: Swear (the cone is too long for the plate)
Step 8: Dump salt out on the counter because the glue is drying quickly!
Step 9: Roll cone gently in the salt until it is completely covered, let dry.
Step 10: Open the wine
Step 11: Mop the kitchen floor because it's sticky as hell. Aerosol glue does not stay in the box.
I've since repeated the gluing and rolling which has given the cones a more snowy finish. Now just to find a suitable topper and we're done! I'm thinking a big ole Malteaser on the top of each one... what do you think?
OH! Top with a Ferrero Roche!! OMG! I'm a genius. =)
