Move over cranberries… there’s a new festive Christmas favorite to string. Bubblegum! I stumbled upon one very large jar of bright bubblegum the other day and just knew it needed a second life strung up as garland on one of my trees.
Stringing up sweets is an old holiday tradition. We’ve done popcorn, cranberries, and other goodies in past years, but none quite gives the immediate festive umph that this bubblegum does.
The garland couldn’t be easier to make! Simply thread a needle, poke through the center of a gum-ball, and repeat x100 or a 1000 – or as many strands as you can stand.
So string your heart out to a good ol’ Christmas movie next week and get a jump start on decorating this year with our favorite Christmas vibe – bright, festive, and filled with whimsical fun!
