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.

  1. This is so cool! I really have no talent for turning food into art, because if it's food, it goes in my stomach and then there isn't any leftover to become art. Kudos for being stronger willed than I am!

  2. That looks so pretty and delicious (and easy!)! It reminds me of my middle school science project where I made a model of an atom with candy.
