Fun with Candy

My baby girl just turned 8! In honor of her special day, we had a rainbow birthday party. 
 I had so much fun planning it...more on that later. 
Today I wanted to show you this fun little party favor that I made... A gumball bracelet and necklace.
I started out with the following supplies:
  • a package of large gumballs (5 in this pack) I ordered the gumballs here
  • a large needle
  • 1mm clear stretchy cord
  • a drill with a small drill bit in it

I started by drilling holes into each gumball. Through one end and straight out the other.
Then I threaded the stretchy cord, on a needle, through each gumball.
I added all the gumballs onto one long piece of cording and then tied them off 6 gumballs per bracelet and 8 on the necklace (it looked better and was a better size with these numbers).
I tied a couple knots at the joints and pulled tight. Just like that!
Super easy! So cute! And edible!
Perfect for the birthday girl...
 And a great favor for all her friends.
