St. Patrick’s Day gumball bracelets

March is all about the green, and these gumball bracelets are fun little festive treat. 
They’re quick and easy to make, so make a bunch for party favors or the parade!
To make them, you’ll need:
  • gumballs {single color bags are available at party stores}
  • elastic thread
  • clean embroidery needle
  • ribbons
Thread your needle with the elastic thread and then carefully pierce each gumball, working slowly to string the gumballs like beads.  
Be sure to take your time, as the gumballs have a tendency to crack when you’re making the second hole.
After the bracelets are your desired length {I used 10 gumballs and they fit my littles, age 3-8}, knot the elastic thread and trim any excess.  
Cover the knot with a pretty coordinating ribbon, and enjoy!
