Faux Carmel Apples

I was surfing thru blogs the other day and saw this post on Dragonfly Treasures:

These were so much fun to make!!!!!! I still have to seal them, but I wanted to share with you how my friend Lin and I made ours….

Follow the instructions as to what you need, I ended up getting different paint, these re the colors we mixed:

This is just a personal preference as far as to how much of each…but we ended up adding more paint than the tutorial suggested, and they still turned out great!!!!!

The “nuts” are a type of bedding or cage cover that I found at Wal-Mart…. unfortunately it only came in a huge bag! But I think it was like $3.82 or something, not expensive….

This is ours before the crystal glaze, and we used Krylon Triple Thick Crystal Glaze/0500, also at Wal-Mart.

And here they are before they were glazed….

IMG_2114 isn’t the corn cob bedding amazingly like nuts????

Perfect!!!! They are going on a cute plate on my kitchen table after I add some ribbons…..great decorating idea, and they have no calories!!!!!
