How to make a Gum Drop Pomander Ornament!

Well today we are making Gum Drop Pomander Ornaments. This is a pretty easy craft to make. I chose to make this craft because it has candy on it and it is colorful. It is almost Christmas time too! This craft can really bring delight to your house and family because who does not like candy! But, anyways it is a great way to spread some sweet Christmas cheer this year! Now lets get started!

 I guess I’m in love with candy this year…at least decorating with it. Candy is cheap and when grouped together it is quite beautiful. I’m all about getting a lot of bang for very little buck. Ha!
One day recently, the idea popped into my head to decorate with gumdrops.  Introducing….Gum Drop Pomander Ornaments!!
Fabulous, eh?
Last year I hung candy canes from my chandelier and this year it’s gum drops. I wonder what next year will bring! :)
I know you’re just itching to make a few of these yourself, so let’s get to it!
Supplies You’ll Need:
  • Styrofoam balls {super cheap at Walmart!}
  • Ribbon
  • Straight Pins
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Gum Drops
  • Scissors
Squeeze a dab of glue on a foam ball and then attach the ribbon with a pin through the hot glue.
Loop the ribbon around then glue and pin the ribbon in place.
Begin gluing gum drops in place – alternating colors until the entire ball is covered.
{getting pretty!}
Hang your awesomely fun gum drop pomander ornament…
…on a stand…
…from a chandelier…
…on your Christmas tree, if it has strong branches.
Or you can make the gum drop ornaments without ribbon and
…decorate candle sticks…
or add your gum drop balls to a Christmas vignette.
It would be lovely to make several of these and hang them as a collection. I used fishing line to hang mine from the chandelier.
So, what do you think?


  1. That looks so cute.. and so tasty at the same time! How do you find so many creative and enjoyable crafts? About how long did it take you to make this, and weren't you itching to taste a few gum drops?

  2. I'm glad that you liked my craft. I like to search for unique crafts that can be enjoyed by everybody. This craft might not take too long but, it sure is cool! I love candy and I am inspired to make some candy crafts one in a while. Do you like gum drops a lot?

  3. Well I don't love gum drops alot and I am not a candy freak but once in a while I like eating them and they don't taste awful. The thing about candy crafts that is wicked [ good] is that after you make them, and admire/ adore them, you can gobble them down. Bye, enjoy the holidays and please check out my blog - .
