In this tutorial, I'll show you how to easily create an oversized "bead" necklace from a length of ribbon and a handful of colorful gumballs. This is a great gift idea, or a fun activity for a kids' birthday party or a lazy Sunday afternoon.

You can alternate between two or three colors of gumballs, or add one contrasting gumball for a pop of color.
