Candy tree

Well I've wanted to make a knitted sculpture for a long time now, and when the UK etsy challenge group came up with the topic trees for December I just had to get the needles clicking. But I wanted something unusual and in my style. So inspired by my love of kawaii,sweet treats,bright colours and willy wonka, I give you the candy tree...

Started with this..

And after staying up very very late last night in order to complete it for the deadline. It now looks like this...

My first knitted sculpture!!
