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!
