Another idea for this would be using toothpicks instead of glue. Stick the toothpick into the gum drop, then into the Styrofoam. That way it not only makes a cute decoration, it remains edible. It would make a really cute party decoration and treat. You just need to be mindful of small children with the toothpicks.

I would love to make this for my front door, but the squirrels would eat it, so I will have to find a place indoors to hang it. I love spice drops, so I'm not sure if five pounds would be enough for the wreath because I will be eating them as I go!

I dont think this would do well outdoors anyway. The weather would destroy it in no time at all as is. However, you could shellac it. That would protect it from the elements and the animals. It is a bit more work, but it would last a lot longer. Maybe even more than one season.

This might be my favorite Christmas wreath I've found on the whole website! Gumdrops are adorable, and the big red bow makes this wreath look both fun and elegant. I might have to make one of these this Christmas season.
