This is a super cute project that is easy and cute! It looks kinda like this (my digital camera stinks but it will give you the basic idea.)http://www.geocities.com/sewwaat/gumdrop.JPGYou will need:
Box of round toothpicks
Bag of gumdrops
First, take a styrofoam ball (any size you want) and take a butter knife and cut off part of the bottom so that it will be able to stand on it's own. Then, take a gumdrop and stick a round toothpick in it. Then you take the toothpick (with the dumdrop on it) and stick it in the styrofoam ball. Do this until the entire ball is covered. The one I made I just used random colors but you can also use just red and green for Christmas, red and white for Valentines day, color cordinate with a certain room of your house, etc.. These are very cute- there are about 5 in our house and they are all very different! You can also try this with different shapes of styrofoam (like cones, squares) for an even more unique look.
