I'm excited to announce our new blog contributors, Kristen and Missy from Sweetly Chic Events & Designs, who came up with this beautiful gumball necklace craft I can't wait to share. So take it away, ladies...

Gumball candy necklaces are a fun and fashionable new trend that are sure to make a sweet statement! This new take on your typical candy necklace is a quick and easy option for your next party favor, easy gift, or as a simple craft project.

  • Thin satin ribbon
  • 5-8 large gumballs
  • 1 metal skewer

Gather your satin ribbon and gumballs. In honor of spring, we chose a bright yellow ribbon and shimmer pink gumballs.

Use your metal skewer to carefully puncture a hole into the center of one of your gumballs. Be sure to only puncture one side at a time or the gumball could split. Once you have punctured the gumball, spin the skewer until you have made a smooth hole.

Tie a knot after each gumball you string to secure it into place.

Feel free to add a cute accent to your necklace for a little extra flair! (We chose the perfect pink flower to compliment our gumballs). Or, you can simply tie a pretty bow to finish off your necklace!
