{DIY} Valentine's Gumball Necklaces

Here is an ADORABLE Valentine's gumball craft from One Charming Party. Not only would these be great to hand out at a Valentine's Day party, but they would be cute as party favors for a little girl's birthday as well.

Here are the instructions provided by One Charming Party:

1. Using a metal skewer, pierce one side of the gumball. Hold the top of the gumball steady as you guide the skewer (see photo). This will prevent the skewer from slipping off the slick surface of the gumball.

2. Flip the gumball over and pierce another hole directly opposite to the first hole. If you try to poke a hole straight through both sides at once, the gumball will crack.

3. The hardest part is stringing the ribbon. Use a large needle to thread the ribbon through the gumballs. Thinner ribbon is easier to string. Tie a knot between each gumball as you string it.

Tip: Look for bags of single colored gumballs at your local party supply store.
