Shape and color can be any, as all the same, they will be completely closed and decorated differently. it can be a can, cup, pot, etc., the main thing is that the container there was a fairly wide neck.

Orange with cloves will help create a unique atmosphere in at home
You need to work on a wide surface that is better to cover cellophane or film.
To support the weight of skewered fruit, the base must be heavy enough, and it needs to be strengthened. Put on the bottom of the vase metal products – nails, nuts, any things from metal. it provide stability. Then we fill in gypsum. If his No, you can use putty. Insert the barrel into the solution, screwing a couple into its base screws, this will not give him subsequently Scroll or accidentally pop out. We fix the workpiece strictly in the center until the mass solidifies.
After the gypsum with the barrel has completely hardened in a vase, form a crown. It can be made of polystyrene, for example, glued two hemispheres into a ball, crumple the canvas from newspapers soaked in glue PVA, etc.
Advice! If you settled on a newspaper option, a product should dry for at least 10 hours. Only after that it will gain desired strength.
Despite the apparent strength of the trunk, captured by gypsum, the base is worth strengthening. To do this, wet the rope or cord in epoxy glue and wrap around the trunk, while gluing to gypsum. Thus, we fill the neck in a spiral to the edges. We wait a day until everything dries.
Improving the crown
So that the polystyrene or newspapers do not show through between the fruits, Initially it’s worth creating a background. To do this, dip the crown model in glue and roll in ground coffee or small gulls. In addition to a single color effect, you will also get a pleasant aroma. Dry and we put on the trunk. For this, the bottom hole, fill it glue and put on the tip of the wire, beam, branches (depending on which material selected for barrel). We are waiting for drying.
The connection of the crown and the stem
We prepare dummies, toothpicks, glue and scotch tape.
- We attach each mini-model to a toothpick and grease from below glue.
- We stick in the crown so that the bottom of the fruit is glued to the blank crowns.
- Sometimes for extra durability used adhesive tape. In this case, the gaps are hidden under shallow objects – nuts, sweets, berries or flowers.
Hot glue helps to reliably connect jewelry
To decorate the crown, you can use various flowers and fruit
Mounting goes from the top to the bottom vertically or spirals.
Great berry composition
Trim the trunk – you can paint it with beautiful acrylic paint or wrap with tape, cord, or glue and glitter or tinsel.

On top of the vase we impose one of the materials:
- yarn for knitting;
- sea pebbles;
- artificial moss;
- fine granite chips;
- glass pieces;
- and so forth

The principle of operation is the same, but since the weight of natural products in times more dummies, for the foundation you have to take a weighty pot, choose a more powerful trunk and a dense crown.
