You all know my LOVE (obsession, maybe?) with candy and all things sweet, so it is no wonder that I immediately fell in love with this DIY gumdrop topiary tree project that assistant editor, Charynn of Two Sugar Babies did for the holiday magazine. It’s cute, colorful, and although I absolutely love it made with gumdrops – it’s a project that you could tackle with just about any type of candy. Which gives you the opportunity to color coordinate it to your party theme….gotta love that.
This DIY project is simple: use a styrofoam ball as your base, and attach candy with toothpicks (and perhaps a little glue!). Depending on the type of candy, the ball will get heavy, so make sure you plan for a sturdy base. You can also preserve your topiary ball with a clear acrylic spray after you complete it, so that you can save it for years to come!
