I found this project while searching through my Family Fun Magazine. I think this is such a cute project and would be tons of fun for kids to do. The combinations of colors are endless and this can be used not just for Valentines day, but for any holiday or birthday party ect.
1. Cut a strip of plastic wrap 36 inches long and 4 inches wide. Starting in the middle of the strip and working toward the ends, lay unwrapped candies 1 inch apart along the strip's center. Make your row of candies about 20 inches long.
2. Fold the plastic wrap around the candies and roll it up to make a long tube. Tie 3- to 4-inch lengths of ribbon between the candies and at the ends.
3. To form the necklace, tie together the ends of the plastic wrap and trim the excess.
I got this from the Family Fun Magazine Feb 2009 issue here.
