I planted many bittersweet plants almost 20 years ago so I could have my own supply to decorate with. For some reason, I didn’t get a single berry this year, and that is a first. I always decorate my fireplace with branches of bittersweet, it seems like such a “fall” thing to do, grapevine and bittersweet throughout the house, pops of orange and yellow. I was in a big dilemma, too late to wax leaves, they are already off the trees, decorations are so expensive……..and then it came to me !!
I was eating candy corn, you know that pure sugar treat that comes out once a year, and it had all of the colors I wanted. I ran outside, cut down a bunch of branches and wired them together, and pulled out the glue gun and started gluing them on. If you look closely, it doesn’t look like bittersweet, but from a distance? Works for me.
What do you think? Keep it or eat it? lol
