Very cute!

If you're using the styrofoam balls as a base, you can use pins or floral pins to hold everything instead of glue. Much faster and easier. Wink

I used floral pins to hold the large candies and ribbons, but the small red and silver beads are hard plastic and had to be glued!!!! They are so fun to make.

I love these! The colors are great! Another neat color scheme to try would be green and white, using green peppermint candies! What a yummy and beautiful gift!
