My kids and I love making these necklaces for teacher's on Valentine's. I'm sorry but I don't have pictures of our process... just the end result:



We use 6-inch wide Tulle ribbon, and wrap candy or chocolates within it in sections. Between each section we tie a ribbon. Super easy, and the teachers have always loved this sweet gift!

We just made some more for the staff at our youngest kid's school, and this year instead of ribbons to make the sections, we used beads. It worked great and looked really nice! One year we tried knots and that didn't really work for some reason... just looked weird.  Undecided

Also one year we had a teacher who was on a strict raw-food vegan diet, so candy was out. So instead, we filled the necklace with kumquats! She loved it!

Love the idea!  I have never seen a necklace made of candy before!  They remind me of Hawaiian leis.
