I made some table pieces for a Murder Mistery Dinner we had at our school. I
know its not Holiday related but the idea could be used for maybe Candy Cane ? I
cut the general shape out of blue foam. I then used a file and sand paper to
smooth it out. Then I covered it with joint compound and latex paint. Then two
coats of flat black paint.( Flat black covers up all the little nicks)
I then drilled a hole for a 1/4" wooden dowel. THe bases were made with plaster
and a plastic cup. I mixed the plaster and filler cups up 3/4 full. Let dry cut cup
away and drilled a 1/4" hole for dowel.
One of the moms covered the bases with black candy bags and they looked great.
I used 10 lbs of plaster, 24 plastic cups and 6 dowels.
