Gumdrop Christmas Tree DIY

Gumdrop Christmas Tree DIY

Here is a (literally) sweet holiday decoration for your holiday table! And it's so easy to make!

There are a few people in our home who like to pick at foods on the holiday table, before everything is ready. (I may or may not be one of them.)

This year, I am ready! If any gumdrops disappear, I'll have a few extra toothpick gumdrops in reserve, to fill in any suddenly-empty spots! Happy holidays!
