Don't just eat your sweeties, wear them.
You could use a variety of sweets for this project, just make sure that they are gummy sweets because not all types will work. I've had a lot of questions about the type of varnish and resin to use for this project, you want a substance that will harden around the sweet and wont allow air in, this way the sweet wont decay.

I'm old, like 40-something, but I think this is a crazy-cool idea!! I mean, a gummy bear bracelet! All those bright colors! And you went about it the right way, you preserved them with varnish. I think you did a great job. Very unique, and new to me!

Too bad they don't make blue or purple gummy bears. Happy Then you could have had a rainbow colored gummy bear bracelet!Happy

Some of those specialty candy places at the mall have purple gummy bears. I was thinking about making a purple one.
