we are loving the new take on the traditional candy necklaces via one charming party! these necklaces make great favors for a birthday parties because they are easy and fast to make.
1. using a metal skewer, pierce one side of the gumball. hold the top of the gumball steady as you guide the skewer (see photo). this will prevent the skewer from slipping off the slick surface of the gumball.
2. flip the gumball over and pierce another hole directly opposite to the first hole. if you try to poke a hole straight through both sides at once, the gumball will crack.
3. the hardest part is stringing the ribbon. use a large needle to thread the ribbon through the gumballs. thinner ribbon is easier to string. tie a knot between each gumball as you string it.
tip: Look for bags of single colored gumballs at your local party supply store.
have fun making these for your next party!
