You remember the bubblegum necklace. The drilling. The flying gum balls. I may have found an easier way. I like this idea because it's less hazardous and much quicker. Plus the candy is wrapped so that it will stay clean and dry until it's meant to be consumed. Unless you run through the sprinklers or jump in the pool first.
Pink, yellow & orange gum balls
Yellow & orange striped balls on pink ribbon
Yellow & striped balls on yellow ribbon
Red White & Blue striped balls
and last but not least . . .
Patriotic Tootsie Rolls!
The Tootsie Rolls required no further wrapping and are simply tied together at the twists with ribbons. The striped candies and gum balls were enclosed inside clear food wrap & twisted then little ribbons were tied between each segment.
Have a sweet day!
