You need:
-2 package of licorice rolls (if you find different color roll it will turn out really pretty, I know they do them red too),
-colored candies with holes.

Tools:
-hair drier,
-knife,
-paper tape,
-bowl,
-aluminum foil,
-parchment paper.

Step 3: MAKE BOTTOM LACE

This is the part that will form the bottom part of the bra and the bottom lace.

Connect two long strings of licorice with an holed candy like in the photo.
Do it with 6 strings (this way you are going to have 3 really long one).

Step 4: MAKE THE CUPS

Place everythings on the parchment paper.

Cut some sections of the strings, all of the same measurement. (Depending on how big you want to make the cups of the bra).
Put them all near each other horizontally on top of the long strings you did before, on one sides of the candies (see photos).
Tape them together on the edges.

Step 5: WEAVE THE STRINGS

Now it come the harder part: weaving the strings.

Place two longer strings (they are going to be the neck laces) in the middle of the strings you set before, passing under one string and on top of the other, then under, then on top, etc.,etc.... like in a loom.
Then add more strings in the same way, on the left and on the right of the long one (please help yourself with photo!).

Step 6: COVER CANDIES

Cover the candies with enough aluminum paper, or they will melt in the next step.
