Course not! I had great fun making it....literally took me about 10 mins too! I got a Sphere Oasis (You know the green dry stuff the florists put flowers in? You can poke it and the hole stays in it?) So I got one of them in Tip Top off Capel Street! (2 for €11) The tree I got in IKEA for €15 and chopped off the grass bits on the top branch! The pink pot I got in IKEA also for about €2.39! First: Cover the sphere in some nice material (for when the sweets are taken off - I just used an old black scarf/pashmena type thing) and fix it to the sphere with cocktail sticks! Then stick it on the top of the tree! Then using cocktail sticks stuck into the FR stick them into the sphere and voila!! I used 144! You can buy them for like €150! My total cost was - Plant - €15 Pot - €2.39 FR - €50 So less than €70! And it looks amazing even if I do say so myself!

No way! Where? If I'd of known that I wouldn't of bothered...although I'm glad I did now! Nothing like stepping back and looking at something and saying "Yeh....I did that" haha!

Well done Michael, you're obviously one of the creative and talented ones - unlike me! :hyper: Mrs PR, I'm looking for a strawberry tree. Does your supplier also supply them and if so could you let me know who they are? Thanks!
