Ribbon Candy Ornaments Create ornaments that resemble classic ribbon candy. Thread a needle with embroidery floss and knot at one end. Thread on one clear acrylic bead, then poke the needle through the end of a 1-inch-wide paper strip. Thread on two more beads and loop the paper (as shown). Poke the needle back through the paper. Repeat until the entire paper strip has been looped. Finish by running the floss twice through the top bead and make a loop for hanging.
