Amanda is hosting a 6 month long Christmas challenge on her blog! June was ornaments, July was a table runner and this month is a center piece for the table! Here are a couple pictures of my submission. LOL! The first attempt at making this thingy was a complete FAILURE!!!! The poor thing melted. You see, I removed the wrappers, HOT glued the peppermints onto the styroform cone and the more I worked, the MORE sticky the peppermints became. YIKES! didn't have enough for the size cone. Well, while waiting to purchase more peppermints, it occurred to me that I should do something so that every insect in the kingdom doesn't land on this thing. Mod Podge... NOT a good idea... I applied liberal amounts and boy what a mess...the candy melted after a couple hours and even over night, the tree turned into a dripping MONSTER of a MESS!!!! So the second try...did not remove the wrappings.... phewwwww!
