St. Patricks Day Jello  Mold How to  double click  pictures to enlarge details.
Supplies you will need:
Candy mold -plastic
cooking spray
small metal cup for on stove
window clings- dollar store mine are green for shamrocks
Beads or toothpicks in the shape of shamrocks
Button or tray for jellos to set on
White puffy paint.

I did this article in American Miniaturist last year.  It is a quick and easy way to do jello.

Spray a small amount of cooking spray into plastic candy mold of your choice.  On the stove in a metal pan at very low heat add the window clings, one is enough to do one jello.  Watch very closely and stir constantly, until melted.  Pour into jello mold.  At this time add beads or shamrocks into jello and allow to set.  When cured it will take on the same consistency as it had before, but it will be molded like jello.  It will jiggle and feel like jello. Glue onto tray or a button.  Use white puffy paint and apply dots of whipped cream around the jello and into the center.  Keep away from pets and kids.  Also a good idea is to not put in direct sunlight or near a heat source.
