Christmas Tree Tutorial #10

Today's post will be my last Christmas tree tutorial, and I think I saved the best for last. It's been fun putting together these tutorials with their different methods and ideas. Hopefully you've been able to learn something new and have enjoyed yourself as well.

Be aware that today's tree is a bit more tedious and time consuming than the others. However, I think the end result is well worth the effort. This tree looks much more realistic, so you just might have people asking, "How did you do that?"

Pretty cool looking tree... huh!

You'll need a green fondant cone, a rolling pin, and a small daisy cutter. (Or any other similar flower cutter.)

Cut out a flower shape then fold it in half.

Fold it in half one more time, so it's folded into quarters.

This is what it will look like. There should be a triangular shape at the bottom.

Using a little water, wet that little triangular shape and glue it to the base of the cone. Push up the individual petals so they stick out.

Continue adding flower shapes as you work your way up the tree.

It takes a little while, but when you finish filling in the tree... it looks fantastic!

Tomorrow will be my Grand Finale!!! So make sure you don't miss it...
