ribbon candy

Zero calories!  The craft from years ago Martha Stewart (ribbon candy ala MS).  Simple & shiny!

General directions for ornament shown:

  1.  1 yard 1 1/2″ wide stripped ribbon, embroidery thread, shiny silver beads (6mm & 4mm)
  2. mark the ribbon every 2 1/2″ (depends on width of ribbon, adjust accordingly)
  3. tie knot at the end of thread, thread small bead, large bead, poke ribbon at low mark, small bead, poke through ribbon, large bead, alternate all the way up
  4. end with both beads, tie knot & make loop for hanging
  5. trim the lower & upper ends of the ribbon in a “v” (aka swallow-tail)
