Weddingbee Ornament Swap 2012

For the annual blogger bee ornament exchange, I drew Candy Apple's name and breathed the sigh of relief that comes with picking a straightforward icon! I always feel bad for people that draw my name (sewing machine) since it's so complex, but every year I've been amazed at how awesome they look! (Special thanks to Sushi for this year's ornament!)

Anyway, here's my apple:
It's a small ball of foil covered in red sparkly fimo clay.  I added a metal hook on the back for ornament hanging, and punched a hole for the small wooden dowel.
After it baked, I painted the bite mark with acrylic paint, glued the dowel in, and dipped the whole thing (just like a real apple!) into polyurethane for coating.

Then, I had immense cravings for a real candied apple. Sticky and sweet!


  1. Love it! I didn't know it was a ball of foil under the clay.

  2. This is adorable! Heading over to check out the ornament you received now :)

  3. How cute! Oh the one you received is spot-on and adorable!!! :D


Your thoughts - go!
