Now onto the title of this post . . . the gumdrops are in reference to my 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.
Here's my super duper jumbo gumdrop topiary. This one took A LOT of gumdrops and glue but I love it!
I'm sure you're all wondering what guinea pigs have to do with gumdrops. Well, nothing really. I just thought the title sounded cute . . . and oh yeah, we took care of a guinea pig over Thanksgiving. My daughter Hannah is in the 4th grade and her class has a pet guinea pig named Ginger. We volunteered to take care of her over the Thanksgiving break.
Hannah really wants a guinea pig so we thought it would be nice to take care of Ginger and "see how it goes". Our biggest concern was how our dog Jake would react. He sniffed her and walked away. I think he wanted to make sure she wasn't another dog! Looks like Santa needs to go guinea pig shopping!!
