Goody Goody Gumdrops

I’ve just been playing around.  With gumdrops, candles and jars.  Christmas music playing, fire in the fireplace, dirty clothes begging to be washed.  You get the picture.

I bought 2 bags of gumdrops, 97¢ each from Walmart.

Used some of my thrifty glass containers.

Three small candles from Dollar Tree ($3).

Things that I already had.

 Eye Candy

This is one container with one bag.

I decided to break it up and spread them around.

I put the gumdrops in three containers.

For around $5, I made my old stuff look new.

Are you using gumdrops this year?

I don’t recommend eating them at the end of the season, when you’re putting your decorations away.  Trust me, I won’t tell you how I know.

I decorated with gumdrops last year too  😉

    GUMDROPS are one of my favorites! They look so yummy on your table, and I really like the peppermint plates. It all looks so festive. Your Christmas decorating is wonderful.

    Why yes I decorate often with gumdrops! I have candle holders that I purchased at Pier One a few years ago. One year I had brightly colored jingle bells in them, one year peppermint sticks and one year gumdrops! When Christmas has come and gone I put coffee beans in them and ohhh the aroma is divine!

    Your table looks so festive! I love to see candy themed decorations at Christmas time. It just brings out the kid in all of us. I used gum drops a couple of years ago in my kitchen when I did a candy theme in there. I love those red and white swirled plates too. They look like peppermints.

    Hi Debbie, Your gumdrop decor is fabulous! The only problem is the display would be gone quickly in our house. Hubby and I both love gumdrops. Thanks for sharing this cute idea at the Open House party.
