The almost edible ornament

United States
December 6, 2017 2:57pm CST
A few years ago, our grandson made a Christmas ornament in preschool using a real ice cream cone and a blue glass ball for the "ice cream." A couple of Christmases later, the younger grandson thought the ice cream cone looked mighty tasty and took a bite of the cone. Thank goodness he didn't bite down on that glass bulb. But the ornament now has a sign why there's a bite out of it. Things like that can't be bought. It's a special little memory of a grandbaby that means nothing to the world. But it means the world to me. Merry Christmas!

What a memory to keep! If it was mine I think I would spray it with a clear lacquer. When it dries it's like a clear plastic shell that will help protect the cone from chipping.

Good idea. Wish I had thought of that before "the bite."

That cone might a little stale by now.

You could glaze that with something. that is an attraction to rodents. It's beautiful though.

I hadn't thought about mice. It stays packed up in an air tight container during the year, so hopefully that will avoid the problem.
