Thanks to Lori  at Thrifty Decor Mom for todays Thrifty Tip,

Check out these gumdrop topiaries I made a few years ago. They are super easy and make a great gift.

The only supplies you need are foam cones (I got mine at Michael’s) and lots and lots of gumdrops. I used my glue gun but I think craft glue would work too. Just start at the bottom and work up to the top. I made these about 4 years ago and they have held up really well. If a gumdrop falls off, I just glue it back on.  A few tips, Use a white cone (not green – it will show through the gumdrops and look weird). Start at the bottom of the cone and work your way to the top.  For a different look, use red & green gumdrops.

Here’s my super duper jumbo gumdrop topiary. This one took A LOT of gumdrops and glue but I love it!
