Now, I've moved onto gumdrops! I made this awesome gumdrop wreath inspired by Cheryl over at A Pretty Cool Life.
I thought I would write up a quick tutorial for anyone who would like to try making the wreath themselves. I got the idea at about 11 this morning, bought the supplies during the afternoon, and made the wreath in about an hour or so.
- About 3 lbs of gumdrops, $1 a bag
- 10" wreath form, $1
- LOTS of hot glue, $1
- Sealer, on hand
- Ribbon, on hand
1. I wrapped the wreath in clear packing tape for a little reinforcement and then wired it to hang it on a door.
2. Next I just glued, glued, glued gum drops in a random pattern all over the wreath.
3. After covering the wreath, I sprayed in with sealant. Let it dry, added the ribbon, and VOILA!
I'm really happy with the results and would recommend this to any other beginning crafters like me. :)
