Sweet Trees!

Happy Wednesday,

Now there is a story connected to these sweet filled trees, at work I make sweet bouquets, more of those next year, I have to keep something in my bag of tricks!  The bar next door decorated their tables using Christmas trees with sweets hanging on them, my boss asked if I could have a go at making some for sale and these are my first attempt!

They are simple wine bottles, empty and recycled from my evening job, card and tinsel.

Let me know what you think they go on sale today!



  1. Hola John
    These are great but wouldn't last 5 minutes in this house with Mr Duck's sweet tooth before it was just the tinsel and bottle. I don't even bother with chocs on the tree anymore lol !
    Hope you're getting well paid for these creations!
    Have a great day.
