If you look closely, I've attached gumdrops to it, making them look kind of like the Christmas lights. I thought of an pretty easy way to make these gumdrops, hope you like it! First, I mixed translucent clay with whatever color you want to use, at 9:1 ratio.  Then I made the clay into the log shape, and cut…
