DIY Gumball Necklace

Materials Needed:

* Large colors gumballs (red, pink and white I went for)
* Large tapestry needle or metal skewer 
* Baker's Twine
* Pretty satin bow 
* Favors boxes
* Hot glue


Using the metal needle or skewer (goes without saying, but just in case: make sure it's properly clean!), carefully piece each gumball. best to do this on top of a chopping board to be safe. thread twine throw to make a necklace, alternating the colors. Tie a knot on each end and finish by hot gluing the bow to the twine at the front. Package into cute favor boxes for assorted look, or wear / eat it at once !
