Martha Stewart Countdown #51 Gumdrop Pops

Howdy Jaderbugs! I can’t believe today is almost over with. Where does time go and who gave them permission to take it so quickly…I just want to warn you before doing this craft! You will be cutting and rolling pieces of gum drops the entire time and I suggest putting a wet wash cloth by you unless you plan on licking your fingers the entire time {{like I did}}…..Then you will be pouncing off of the walls! So let’s get started {{i feel like a real live gum drop people}}….

I used some plain ole spice drops. I really forgot how much these suckers stick to your teeth…I think that is why our parents told us they were bad for our teeth {{duhhh now I know why}}…

Grab some skewers! These babies will hold the spice drops!

I used a razor blade to cut the spice drops. These suckers are hard to cut!

I don’t know about you but I WISH I had enough time to make hundreds of these and hand them out to my neighbors…. Obvisouly this one is not done.. Well, technically it “could” have been done but someone could have “ate” his parts… Were gonna go with NOT DONE.  I listed the directions for each design below for you!

For Santa
Use top half of 1 small gumdrop for hat. Trim 2 oblong candies for arms. Use candy-coated seeds for buttons and pom-pom. Poke candy where facial features will go with a skewer; use sticky tip to pick up and place nonpareils for eyes and nose.

For Tree
Use 1 flattened gumdrop for base of tree. Use 1 small gumdrop for trunk. Cut sides from 1 gumdrop; press sides around top of stick, for treetop. Flatten 1 gumdrop; using an aspic cutter, cut out star. Insert sprinkles for lights.

For Snowman
Trim top of head; top with 1 candy wafer and half of 1 small gumdrop for hat. Using a skewer (see “For Santa”), place nonpareils for eyes, mouth, and buttons. Insert sprinkle for nose.

For Mushroom
Use 1 small gumdrop for stem. Use sequin sprinkles for dots.

You can’t tell me you didn’t feel good when you first looked at these honeysuckles. I felt good when I ate one… JS
