Valentine Topiary

Last year I wanted to make the ladies I visit a Valentine's Day gift. Here's what they got:
I used broken toothpicks to stick gummy candies on to styrofoam balls which I had painted pink. I used more painted styrofoam balls in painted clay pots to stablize the topiary. Long popsicle sticks worked perfectly to bring it together. Everything is better with a bit of tulle! I found most of the gummies at Walgreens with some gummy frogs and mushrooms from World Market. Sweet to eat!
