  • Begin by deciding if you want your gumdrops to be applied in patterns or just a mismatch design.
  • Apply a generous dab of glue to the bottom, flat side of the gumdrop.
  • Press the gumdrop to the ball, pressing firmly and holding for a few seconds until you know it has adhered well.
  • Repeat this process until the ball is covered. If you have a small space that is not covered but a gum drop won’t fit in it, just use scissors to snip a small piece of the gumdrop candy that will cover the space.
  • Once the ball is covered, cut a piece of ribbon for hanging. Apply some glue to the ends and press it in between two gumdrops. Allow 15 minutes for drying.
