Whimsical Christmas Wreath

So I had all of these big, eleaborate plans to make a burlap/paper wreath. It was going to take hours and hours of fine craftsmanship to make. Well, life got in the way, and instead the kids and I made a whimsical, funny wreath instead. And with a blog called tatertots &; jello — I think it fits in perfectly!
**Put a dab of Gorilla Glue on each Marshmallow before you put the toothpick through and attach it to the wreath. This will keep the marshmallows on the wreath all season long!

  1. I just made this with my kids. We had to put the toothpicks into the styrofoam before putting the gorilla glue on the marshmallows and then pushed the marshmallow onto the toothpick. We used 4 bags of big marshmallows and 1/2 bag of small ones (our styrofoam was flatter than the one picture … maybe that’s why we had to use so many more??). I couldn’t find inexpensive gumdrops (was going to have to pay by the pound!) so we used 2 boxes of Dots instead. Those we didn’t glue at all. They seemed to have a great grip on the toothpick! I plan on hanging this in my kitchen. Hoping it lasts a few months since it’s more “winter” than too Christmas-y. Super cute idea! Hope it holds up!

  2. Does this wreath need to be weatherized somehow? Seems like high humidity or rain would make it all soggy.

  3. Oh man, Precious. Gotta make one!!

  4. What did you use the small marshmallows for and how many gum drops did you have to use?

  5. Your marshmallow wreath is so cute. I want to try and make it but I have a question. How many bags of marshmallows did you use? In the picutre you show 1 bag of regular and 1 bag of mini marshmallows, but the wreath looks like you used a whole lot more than that. Thanks!

    • Hi!! I think I used two bags of big marshmallows and a bag of small. It’s been a few years, but that seems right. Let me know if you make one!!


  6. LOVE it!! So wonderful!

  7. This is the cutest thing ever! Thanks for the ideas.
