Gum Drop Pomander Ornament for kids

Candy, Flower arrangement, Holiday & seasonal crafts  |  September 15th 2011  |  0 Comment

One day recently, the idea popped into my head to decorate with gumdrops.  I’ve made two different gum drop crafts {one of which I’ll show you soon…I promise}, but for now here is one that I’m just loving!  Introducing….Gum Drop Pomander Ornaments!!

Fabulous, eh?

so let’s get to it!

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • Styrofoam balls {super cheap at Walmart!}
  • Ribbon
  • Straight Pins
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Gum Drops
  • Scissors

Squeeze a dab of glue on a foam ball and then attach the ribbon with a pin through the hot glue.

Loop the ribbon around then glue and pin the ribbon in place.

Begin gluing gum drops in place – alternating colors until the entire ball is covered.

{getting pretty!}

Hang your awesomely fun gum drop pomander ornament…

…on a stand…

…from a chandelier…

…on your Christmas tree, if it has strong branches.

Or you can make the gum drop ornaments without ribbon and

…decorate candle sticks…

or add your gum drop balls to a Christmas vignette.
