Goody Goody Gumdrop Necklaces

Here's a necklace good enough to sink your teeth into, the gumdrop necklace! While eating gumdrops today, the idea popped into my head. So, I tested it out and it worked! Love when that happens. Just think of the possibilities with all the great shapes gummy candy comes in, coke bottles, frogs, hearts, etc. This could be a fun child craft project/treat. Perhaps favors for a birthday party? Directions below.

Supplies:
Gummy candy
Waxed dental floss
Sterilized sewing needle

Just thread the needle and start stringing the candy however you want. The candy will stay in place because it's so sticky. To secure the necklace I just tied it in a basic knot. Here's the directions to make the flower.

That's sooo cool! I was going to make me a whole lot of tea and start reading Personal Income Tax Act... and now I'm off to buy me some gumdrops. I'm no longer able to read that without some gummy sweetnes now.
