Step 1 Taking the awl, firmly grip the gumball in one hand while slowly piercing the gumball all the way through with the awl. Grip, pierce, repeat until all your gumballs are pierced.

TIP It is important to pierce slowly and firmly. These little guys are tougher than they look, maintaining full control at all times with a sharp object would be wise here.

Step 2 Begin threading the string through the pierced gumballs until you reach your desired length. Knot both ends and you're done!

Tip Depending on your gumball size and quantity, this garland can be quite heavy. When hanging, be sure it is secured tightly and safely
