But it’s starting to look like Christmas inside. I finally finished up Kathy’s WNRR.
Cobbled together from Brightneedle & Thistle Threads ornaments from JCS. I love those giant snowflakes.
And Sunday during pre-game I made this:
(still needs a ribbon)
I got the idea from here. Two tips I learned while putting it together. Hold the toothpicks like this while you cut (wire cutters work great) them:
And insert the half toothpick into the Styrofoam and then stick the gumdrop onto that.
And make sure you do this over newspaper or something like that, you’ll have a ton of sugar all over your work surface when you’re done.
3, 1lb 4oz packages of small size gumdrops covered a 11 & 7/8″ wreath with a few left over for snacking. Now if you’ll all excuse me I’ve got 4 pies to bake and a trip to the Post Office too.
