Making Edible Jewelry

January 17, 2009

Bracelet and necklace.This craft is easy, inexpensive, and makes for a great way to occupy your child when you need it most. You will want to make several to store so they are ready to use when you need them!


Approximate Time:



  1. Cut off a piece of dental floss to the size you want.
  2. Thread cereal such as Fruity Cheerios, Fruit Loops, or similar onto the floss.
  3. Tie the ends in a regular bow and store in a zip top bag.
  4. When ready to use, untie the bow and tie in a knot around your child's neck, wrist, etc.

Enjoy the craft that is fun to wear and not so bad to eat as a snack. Good to take along for grocery shopping trips! Some kids may be able to make these themselves, while the younger ones will probably need help.

Editor's Note: Be careful about placing these necklaces around very young children's necks, to avoid accidents. Bracelets would be a better choice for younger children, especially under three.

I am looking for ideas for Edible Jewelry. I have approximately 150 kids from toddlers to 12 years for my company Christmas party. I'm not sure how much to buy for this size group. I do have some ideas of what to buy but I guess I am looking for some unique ideas or other items that I may not have thought of.

Thank you for your feedback.

i don't know if you have thought of this or not but you could string the gummie life savers for the smaller ones and the regular candy kind for the olders ( even the mint ones)

Thank you for your feedback. I think I will set up one side with candies type items and the other side with cereal types and maybe prezels. This will give a nice variety. Thank you again.

A candy garland makes a special gift. These necklaces can be made with individually wrapped candies and a needle and thread.

Candy Garland - stop when you have reached your desired length
