How To: Candy Necklace Craft Favor

>> Monday, August 9, 2010

With all the gorgeous Candy Buffets created for parties these days, we thought, what better way to expound on that idea than with this fresh alternative... and of course, lots of candy?

In this little tutorial, we'll show you how to create your own modern favor boxes, filled with candy and string, for party guests to make tres chic Couture Candy necklaces. They would be a sweet success at a wedding, a DIY kids beading party or even a sweets-themed shower.

Here's how we did it.

  • Favor boxes (we used 4" clear cube boxes)
  • a skewer
  • Embroidery Floss (to match your candy colors)
  • Cereal with holes (like Fruit Loops) a large box will fill 10 favor boxes
  • Candies (take a favor box with you to the candy store so you can get a sense of how much you need to fill each box)

1. Play with your color palette ~ you could do each box in a single color group, or include the whole rainbow!

2. Trim Licorice Belts into small squares.  Using a skewer, poke a hole through licorice belts and other chewy candies.

3. Layer the cereal, then candies in each box.

4. Place a length of embroidery floss - tied at one end with a Fruit Loop and knotted at the other - on top of the candies inside the box.

5. You can make your own labels with pretty scrapbook papers and card stock or you can download our Couture Candy Labels for free! Affix labels to box front.

6. Tie some rock candy to the box with some cording or ribbon.

7. Then let your guests have a blast making their own candy necklaces!
