If you’re like me, you’ve already stocked up on your Easter candy this year. Easter candy is the best candy! If you already have enough Easter candy to spare, this is such a sweet and simple craft to do with your kids. It only requires a little bit of assistance, some ribbon and sewing supplies, and Easter candy (if you can share some!).
- bright ribbon
- small needle and thread
- Easter Candy Corn
- Easter Marshmallow Chicks & Rabbits
- hot glue gun
Step 1: Have your kids arrange the candy in a pattern they like. Lay the pattern out as long as you like. Using the smallest needle possible, thread the candy onto the thread. Be careful! It’s very easy to break the candy or poke your finger. Continue to thread the candy on until it is all on there. Set this aside for just a moment! Parents will need to do the thread and needle portion of the craft.
Step 2: Measure and cut your ribbon to whatever length you like. I cut mine a little longer so I could tie a cute bow in the back. Take the end of the ribbon and hold it as close to the end of the candy on the thread as possible. Using the needle and thread, sew the end of the ribbon onto the end of the thread with the candy on it.
Sew it all over, about 10 times and from every angle. Repeat this on the other end of the candy thread.
Step 3: Tie some cute bows with contrasting, smaller ribbon. Check out my favorite simple bow tutorial for this. Hot glue these bows to cover where you sewed the ribbon onto the thread. That’s it! Tie the bow in the back and you have a darling Easter candy necklace!
I hope you and your kids enjoy this sweet craft!
