Festive Gumdrop Trees
Write a review
- styrofoam cone or ball
- gumdrop candies, 2-3 bags
- First, you’ll want to separate your gumdrops into their own colors. Unless you buy a package that comes in a solid color, or Christmas colors, you’ll have to pick each one out. You can see we used mostly Christmas colors to craft with and are eating the purple and orange ones as we go.
- Gumdrop Tree Toothpicks
- For the toothpicks, you don’t need the whole piece. You can easily break them in half with your fingers. Then place the broken end into the gumdrop. You’ll want the pointy end facing out, ready to be pressed into the styrofoam.
- Gumdrop Candy Ball
- Depending on what you’re going to make, pick out your colors and get the toothpicks on. Then press your gumdrops into the cone or ball. You can make this a pattern or be very random about your placement, it’s up to you. And it will take a lot of gumdrops to make a tree.
