Getting Ready for Christmas

Doesn't this just sight just scream fun and festive?

Here is a double layer tree, aka a topiary.

These sell for $165 online, but are easy enough to make...
supplies needed: gumdrops, toothpicks, dowel, pot and styrofoam ball as well as styrofoam for the pot.

Paint dowel or "stem" and insert into styrofoam ball with a little glue and let dry.
Insert opposite end into foam that is placed in pot.

Attach toothpicks to gumdrops, then stick in foam ball.

If you don't plan on eating the candy, then you can use a hot glue gun to attach the gumdrops!
