I’ve started my Christmas decorating. Since I spend the vast majority of my waking hours in a cozy cubicle, I thought I’d start there, so I made a little gumdrop wreath:
I added a green polka dot bow, and made a swag for the wall with plain green ribbon and tiny glass candy ornaments. It’s harder than you would think to get those gumdrops nicely arranged. I pulled nearly all of them off once and started over. My fingers are quite painful today. It’s a nice little cheap project, though. The wreath form I got at Michaels for $1.99 and gumdrops were on sale for $1 a bag. I had the ribbon, so for less than $5 I’ve got a pretty little wreath.
I also won 1000 pom poms on eBay for $1.25. One Thousand pom poms! I’m counting them when they arrive to make sure I didn’t get ripped off. Then I’m going to make pom pom garlands.
Comments are cracking me up. Everyone is concerned that the wreath will be eaten! The part I didn’t tell you was that I bought 3 bags of gum drops, they were red, green and white. There weren’t very many white ones, so I think I used nearly all of them from the three bags, but there were still plenty of red ones left, and I didn’t use a single green one. So really, I’m more worried about getting sick of gum drops before I will ever have to pluck one off my wreath. Don’t be so impressed with my willpower, I ate plenty while I made me wreath :o)
