Who doesn’t love rainbows? And big colorful gumballs? We’ve combined the two to make a cheerful Rainbow Gumball Necklace! These colorful necklaces are great for St. Patrick’s Day gifts and would also make darling party favors for rainbow themed parties too.
I have always loved these DIY gumball necklaces from the moment I saw them on One Charming Party, and have wanted a reason to make them for quite sometime. St. Patrick’s Day seemed like the perfect occasion. This simple little project makes me smile, but then again I imagine that it would be very difficult to be wearing a colorful gumball necklace and not be happy. And the fact that it cost less than $2 and 5 minutes to make this cheerful gift is another big reason to smile.
I started by drilling holes with my husbands drill (I sterilized the 3/32″ drill bit first) in the gumballs.
Next, I threaded my gold ribbon through a large needle.
I carefully strung each gumball on the ribbon and tied a knot after each one to hold them in place.
Tie the ends of your ribbon to create your necklace.
My daughter wanted to give these cheerful necklaces to friends so I made an “I’m over the Rainbow that we’re friends” favor tag so we could give them as St. Patrick’s Day gifts.
I found these gold gift boxes at Target and they were perfect to hold the necklaces. I tied them up with some tulle and rainbow colored twine and attached the sweet little tag.
