Instructions:

1. Assemble and design kinara. Glue two blocks of florist foam together and let dry overnight. Make a design on paper (keep shapes big and simple) and lay the paper on the block. The blocks are very soft so if you draw firmly over design on paper, it will show on the block. Use a knife to outline the shape. Carve out the design with tools 1/2 to 1 inch deep -- a melon baller works great for digging out holes. Use a candle to press a groove into the foam to fit candles.

2. Decorate kinara. Mix 1 cup of spackle and 2 tablespoons of water (mixture should be thin), and brush on block. Let dry until hard. Paint with acrylic paint and use rub-on gold with finger or cloth.
