This is not my original idea, but one I tucked away for this year. I thought they would make nice gifts for the kids’ teachers made by both them and me. You will find the tutorial by Posie Gets Cozy here.
We had FUN making these. I did discover my children are not fond of gumdrops, which worked quite nicely on saving our supplies for the project rather than eating our stash. We would have had a much harder time with say, um, an M&M wreath.
