Step 1: Gather Gumballs & Ribbon
Step 2: Drill and Thread the Gumballs
Thread your ribbon through the holes of each gumball. I used a thick wire to push it through, but a large-eye needle or a bit of string wire tied around the ribbon will do. Position the gumball near the center of your length of ribbon and tie knots on either side.
Keep going until you’ve got all 6 or 10 (or however many) gumballs on the ribbon.
Step 3: Tie It Together
Step 4: Seal & Finish (Optional)
As a warning, the colors from some store-bought gumballs might rub off a little on clothes or skin if it's wet or extra humid, or if you're sweating. To prevent this, you can spray it with some kind of sealant from a craft store, but you render your gumball necklace inedible .
Either way, it's still a creative gift idea!
