A styrofoam wreath form- mine is 12"
jelly beans- I used more than 2 bags but not quite 3. You can use any jelly beans you want, I only like starburst ones so....
a glue gun- preferably a low temp one
glue sticks- I bought some foam glue sticks but ended up running out and the regular ones I had at home worked just as well
1. Sort the jelly beans by color. If you have a cute little helper like I do, they can do this part. By all means, eat a few jelly beans but not too many cause this project takes a lot.
|She did a great job!|
3. Once I finished gluing all the jelly beans on, I used an old toothbrush to get all the hot glue strings off. Then I glued some ribbon to the back for hanging and a bow on the front. I'm not crazy about the bow but it will stay for now. And it's done!
I hung my wreath inside my kitchen. Our front door faces west and gets all the hot afternoon sun. I'm afraid it might melt so it's an indoor decoration. But if you can find a nice shady place to hang, it would look pretty and springy outdoors!
