Holiday Gumdrop Wreath.

What you'll need:
  • a 12" styrofoam wreath
  • wire for hanging
  • ribbon
  • toothpicks
  • gumdrops
Helpful suggestions: this wreath is heavy, so thicker gauged wire works best. (I was a few gumdrops shy of using five 1 lb., 2 oz. bags). I was concerned the wire would tear through the styrofoam, so I wrapped some masking tape around a bit of the wreath before I attached the wire. Also, get a second box of toothpicks, as if you really cram the gumdrops close together like I did, you'll run out. I hope you have as much making this wreath as I did and here's hoping your family doesn't keep sneaking gumdrops out of the bowl like someone did at my house. Ahem, Dave.
