We all love our holidays on the balcony out in the sun, especially when our delicious iced tea is safe from insects! These fruit glass covers can also be used as coasters and thanks to the neon FIMO effect, they provide a flash of bright colours in your little jungle. We have shown you how to make yourself fruity kiwis, juicy melons and even exotic dragon fruits from neon pink and neon green FIMO effect.

Step-by-step guide

Kiwi

For the kiwi, you need half a block of neon green FIMO effect, 1 strip of white FIMO soft and half a strip of black FIMO soft.

Roll out the neon green FIMO so it is flat and evenly spread and cut or punch out a circle (around 7.5 cm).

Knead the rest of the neon green FIMO with half of the white FIMO to form a homogeneous, light green ball and shape a flat oval from one part. You also need a white circle and dark kiwi skin. To create the skin, mix the remaining green with some black, and place the rolled out band around the green circle. Place the light green oval and the white circle in the middle on top of one another and carefully roll the different layers together until your circle has a diameter of 9.5 cm.

For the tiny seeds, roll out of a string of black FIMO soft and cut off small portions with the blade. Make small balls and place them on your kiwi in a ring shape. Now all you have to do is cut a hole for the straw.

Dragon fruit

Cut half a block of white FIMO soft, one strip of neon pink FIMO effect and half a strip of black FIMO soft for your dragon fruit.

Roll out the white FIMO so it is flat and evenly spread and cut or punch out a circle (around 7.5 cm).

For the bright skin of the fruit, roll out a thin band using neon pink FIMO and place it around the white circle. Press the two rings together and roll them with the acrylic roller until your circle has a diameter of about 9.5 cm.

You can create the tiny seeds by rolling out of a band of black FIMO soft and cutting off small portions with the blade. Then create tiny balls and press them into the white circle. The cover now just needs a hole for the straw.

Melon

To make the melon, you need half a block of neon pink FIMO effect, a strip of neon green FIMO effect, a strip of white FIMO soft and half a strip of black FIMO soft. First roll out the neon pink FIMO effect so it is flat and evenly spread and cut or punch out a circle (around 7.5 cm).

Roll out two bands using the white and neon green FIMO and place them around the neon pink circle. Press the rings together carefully and roll them until your circle has a diameter of about 9.5 cm.

The melon seeds are drop-shaped and the pointed-ends point towards the centre of the circle. Roll out of a string of black FIMO soft as before and cut off small portions with the blade. Create small drops by rolling the balls on one side with your fingers and add them to the circle.

Don’t forget the hole for the straw!

Harden all the FIMO parts on baking paper in the oven for 30 minutes at 110°C top and bottom heat. When the glass covers have cooled down you can put the straws through the covers and place them on your glass.
