it!) - eat some sweeties and/or choccies and gather together some cellophane sweetie wrappers!!
Wrap a strip of carrier bag around the stick. Then on top wrap a sweetie wrapper around the stick and secure with a pin to stop it unfolding while you heat. I did try using some with a little bit of foil on but it doesn't work as well as the cellophane type wrappers
Unashamed plug: Cadbury's Roses chocolates eaten at Christmas!!
Hold the heat gun 6-8 inches away from the cello and heat up and down twisting the stick. The plastic carrier bag will fuse together and the cello will melt and fuse to the plastic
I thought it looked a little plain and unfinished so I added two more layers of sweetie wrappers and some copper metallic thread
I heated the bead again so the top layer of cello wrapper fused to the bead
Let it cool down and then push the bead off the stick
The finished bead
