Jelly Bean Garland

Don’t you love the candy selection around Easter time? So colorful and spring-like, I want to buy (and eat!) it all. Conveniently, National Jelly Bean Day is April 22, so it’s a great time to stock up on your favorite jelly beans. I think it would be so much fun to have a jelly bean tasting party, especially with all the gourmet flavors available these days. Make this jelly bean garland to celebrate – you can even hand out the triangles as party favors once the day is over! (PS – Put any extra jelly beans in these fun Easter boxes!)

Supplies: Jellybeans, disposable plastic piping bags, white cardstock, scissors, string, tape, pencil

Step 1: Trace the piping bag onto the white card and cut out as many triangles as desired.
Step 2: Put the paper triangle in the bag and fill with jelly beans.
Step 3: Cut off excess plastic, leaving about 1″ past the top of the paper triangle. Tape the plastic down firmly.
Step 4: Cut off the side bits of plastic that overhang.
Step 5: String the assembled bags onto your string. Be careful not to overload the string – the bags can get quite heavy. If you want lots of triangles on each string, making smaller triangles is a good idea. The triangles pictured are about 6″ from tip to base.

    I want to wear this as a necklace! It’s like a modern version of the candy garlands worn during fiestas in Mexico. Talk about making new friends in a flash! :)
