I was so happy to find this at Michael's...we couldn't wait to make them today.
I put the candy beads in a mini muffin tin lined with bon-bon wrappers. Alfredo helped sort them.
We started out threading them with just the string but it is easily frayed. I found a blunt tapestry needle with a large eye and that seemed to be easier for him to use. After about 20 beads he stopped and said "You know, making candy necklaces is making me tired!" So I helped a little more to speed it along and before you knew it, we had a candy necklace.
Best of all, the kit makes 8 necklaces. We have 7 more to make!
