DIY: Gumball Necklaces—Lovely and Yummy!

Beautiful chunky necklaces are very popular right now. Why not make one you can eat? They are super easy party favors, just detrimental to your middle! Make them fast, and you will be alright.

Here is what you will need:

1. Colorful gumballs
2. Ribbon
3. Metal skewers
4. Embellishments like flowers and ribbons (optional)

First take your metal skewer and puncture holes in your gumballs.

Next wrap the end of your ribbon with tape, and thread ribbon through the gumball.

Tie a knot and then thread another gumball. Continue until you’ve reached your desired length.

That’s it! You’re done. They are pretty as is, but I got these flowers from the Martha Stewart section of Michaels and attached them for extra embellishment. You can also tie a big ribbon bow on the side or add additional flowers.

The perfect edible party favors for your sweet little guests!

Amazing blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any tips? Thanks!
