DIY Tuesday: Bubblegum Necklace!

Bubblegum Necklace

Step #1: Put on a pretty, sparkly ring like this rhinestone bow by Betsey Johnson!
Step #2: Wrap your arms in bubblegum bracelets (This was our first bubblegum jewelry-making attempt inspired by Formal Fringe!)
Step #3: Select a fun, brightly colored ribbon
Step #4: Cut a piece about double the length that you want your necklace to be
Step #5: Tie a knot near the end of the ribbon
Step #6: Gently poke holes in both ends of the gumball with a metal skewer (put gumballs in microwave for a few seconds to soften them)
Step #7: Thread a large tapestry needle with your ribbon
Step #8: Pull your ribbon through both holes in the gumball
Step #9: Tie a knot on the other side of the gumball
Step #10: Continue the process until it's as long as you want it!

PS: Graybee loves her new bubblegum collar!  (Don't worry, we took it off right after the photo was taken!)


  1. Quite love this actually. But wouldn't it get a little sticky throughout the day? That would gross me out.

  2. Haha! Well we wore ours around in the 100+ degree weather and they did pretty well! We wouldn't recommend wearing them on humid or rainy days, however! Cheers!

  3. That is so darn cuuute! Too Pinktastic! xoxo

  4. Thanks! I love this & i'm definitely making one for my baby's first birthday.
