Christmas Craft with Gumdrops

I am not super crafty, but this was simple and came out so beautiful and festive I had to share it with you!

Pick up a Styrofoam wreath (small). I got mine at Wal-Mart, but there would be a bigger selection on Michaels. The list price was $2.99, but I got it on clearance last year for 40% off!  You will also need a glue gun (super handy and affordable at under $10), 4 glue sticks (cost about $0.25 each, and a package of Christmas spice drops.

Use your glue gun (adult only and be careful, the glue is HOT!) and put a dot on the bottom of each gum drop (one at a time) and stick on Styrofoam. It will take you about 30 minutes.

This craft can also be done using toothpicks to stick each gumdrop in the styrofoam wreath making it a perfect craft for Preschoolers and Kindergartners too!

December 2012 1350TADA! Here is your finished wreath. Just insert a pillar candle and you are in business. Something else I really like about it is that the candle fits snuggly, so no worries about it tipping.


  1. If you use toothpicks to attach to styrofoam your child could do this, too. Great idea and I love the finished product.

  2. Your articles don’t beat about the bushes these are actually exact t to the purpose. Braun Series 3 340S-4 review
