DIY 4th of July Gumball Garland

We’re feeling all kinds of patriotic around here, as there’s so much to celebrate this time of year on both sides of the pond. I’m just grateful that the Union Jack and American Flag sport the same colours; red, white and blue are doing double duty in this house!

This garland was so simple to make, even your little ones could help out. Simply poke holes in the gum balls with a needle, then let the kidoes string them on some thread or fishing wire. Hang with nails or tacks and you’re done!

A bag 3.5lb bag of red, white and blue gumballs is only $10.99 at Gygi (see HERE). I used maybe 1/3 of the bag for the garland you can see above, so there’s still plenty to use for other crafts, or perhaps as favors for your 4th of July festivities.

    Way fun to look at and great that it’s not sticky to work with. I’ll try to remember this idea for Christmas.
