I just wanted to share with you the little craft project I worked on last night. From the title of this post you might be able to figure out what the craft was haha! Yes, I made a sweets deco for the first time. I've always been interested in deco, especially sweets deco because it seems less likely to be messed up by someone like me.
All the stuff I used to make the deco
I had a few bento boxes from the Daiso that were languishing (I have like 6 bento boxes, and when do I ever pack my lunch? Never! haha) and I thought they might be good for storing jewelry in. So, I decided to deco them with the couple of deco products I picked up this past time in Japan.
Adding the fake cream
The first thing I did was use brown puff paint to create the look of dripping melted chocolate along the top edge of the lid. It took a long time to dry so I had to wait a day before I could do anything more. After that I could use the bag of Whipple fake cream to cover the rest of the lid. That was the most time consuming part I think, since the fake cream didn't really want to come out.
I didn't have many deco parts, but I used all the little cute things I had. I used a ice cream cone keychain, a donut that came from a bath fizzer, an ice cream deco piece, a donut eraser, a little cookie I made from Model Magic and lots of little jewels and stickers. I had some empty space so I added the heart lock in the front, even though it's not a sweet haha!
The final product!
A close up
The heavy deco pieces ended up sinking as the fake cream dried, so I have to figure out how to prop the big pieces up properly next time.
It was a super fun craft, and it didn't take too much time so I really want to try and do another sweets deco soon. I think having more deco pieces will make the final product look more interesting. I guess I will have to pick some up during Japan Trip 6 haha^^
