Ingredients and Tools:
- clothes pin
- large glass container
- optional but recommended: Torani syrups.
- optional: food coloring
How to make it happen
Cook about one part water to three parts sugar. One necklace will be about 1 cup water, as a reference point.
Once the sugar has completely dissolved and simmered, turn off heat and cool. Mix in any food coloring, and a few drizzles of your choice Torani syrup for flavor.
Soak middle of ribbon (about 2 feet or more) in the sugar water mixture, then coat in sugar overnight until dry.
Place middle of ribbon inside of sugar water, which has been poured into a large glass container. Use clothespins to clip the ribbons and prevent from falling in.
Allow to grow! Move necklaces around a little every day to prevent it from sticking to the sides. While factors will play into how long this will take, including the size of your piece, the humidity, et cetera, you're basically looking at 1-4 weeks.
