Day 23: Gumdrop Wreath DIY
Four years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long already) I was crazy and made a gumdrop wreath! I LOVED how it turned out, but it takes a ton of time to create. It was worth it in the end because it was so cute. I think when I make this decoration again I’ll be sure to use a smaller wreath, and that’s what I suggest you do: put on a couple of Christmas movies, pour yourself a glass of wine, and space out while you start gluing your gumdrops. It may take some time to make, but when you’re done you’ll have a pretty sweet holiday decoration for your door.
The supplies you’ll need for this wreath DIY:
- One wreath (you choose the size and type, I went with a straw wreath)
- Gumdrops (I ended up needing 5 pounds of gumdrops for my large wreath)
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks (I probably went through about 30 sticks of glue, or a million)
- A bowl of water: this is for when you get hot glue on your fingers (cause you will)
- Pretty ribbon
- Clear acrylic spray (optional)
- Wreath hook
- Time (it took me quite some time to create)
