Box or two of toothpicks
Gumdrops (it's more visually appealing to have gum drops all the same color, but you can do it however you like)
Ribbon (for hanging the finished wreath)
Making a gum drop wreath is really simple, it just takes time to get the gum drops all lined up properly. The good news is that if stored properly, this wreath can last for years.
2. Once you've finished breaking the toothpicks, pick a starting place, ideally on the inner rim of the wreath and push the toothpick in halfway.
3. Repeat this until you have a small chunk of gum drops all in a few symmetrical rows. Work in small sections so you can keep the gumdrops even. That's the trickiest part of this whole craft, the symmetry.
4. Go all the way around until the wreath is almost done.
5. When you get close to filling up the wreath, tie a ribbon on so you hang hang the finished product. Do this before it gets too filled up with gum drops so you have someplace to tie the ribbon.
