Easter Necklaces

I know it's a little last-minute, but I finally got my Easter treats made up for my nieces and nephews!

What You'll Need:
Plastic Easter Eggs
Jelly Beans
Elastic Thread
{regular thread would work fine, too}
17-18" Ribbon
{I found a 6 pack of coordinating ribbon for $1 at Target}
1 Large Needle

*I would say that this could be a fun projects for kids, but the needles make this a little dangerous.
You could probably use the larger plastic needles to make this more kid-friendly.

Thread the needle and CAREFULLY poke it through the jelly bean. The coating will make it a little difficult, so be careful. It's also very sticky, so keep a wet cloth nearby to wipe your hands and clean off the needle. I put 5 jelly beans on each side with an empty egg in the center. Leave a few inches on each end of the jelly beans.

Tie the ends of the ribbon to each end of the elastic thread. Tie it tight so it won't come apart!

Fill the egg with a few surprises and that's it!

Hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday weekend!
