To start performing pineapple from a bottle of champagne and sweets you need to prepare the workplace. This is necessary so that in the process of work the heated glue does not have time to dry, everything is well fixed. You need to fasten the treat quickly.

Pineapple from a plastic bottle

If there is no champagne bottle, it is recommended to take polystyrene as the basis. Even small pieces that can be glued together, cut into the shape of a fruit, will do. Work begins with the design of the top and ends with gluing sweets. The first thing to do is decorate the foundation. To do this, the foam is wrapped with a packaging film. For better fixation, it is recommended to fix it with tape. Tie the corners of the film, which were on top of the craft, do not cut. This “tail” is required for fastening leaves.

Next is work on leaves and fixing sweets. The algorithm is as follows:

  1. Cut from the aspidistra 20–25 leaves 15–20 centimeters long.
  2. Glue overlapping leaves to the “tail” of the film. It will look like a lily. Fix everything with glue or tape.
  3. Pre-wrap the base with double-sided tape on which sweets will be molded.

At the final stage, sweets are attached. The sequence is as follows:

  1. Stick goodies to the base. You can treat the sweetness as you would for a bottle, but this is not necessary. When fastening sweets on scotch tape, the ends of the wrapper should immediately be turned inside.
  2. You need to start work from the bottom of the base, move up. You cannot sculpt candies randomly – only in rows.
  3. Close the distance between the leaves and sweets with tape or twine.
  4. Wrap a gift in film.
