Cut a 14″ long piece of embroidery floss, and thread it on to the needle. Insert the needle through the entire candy ribbon (from the bottom to the top) and then back down again, leaving a large loop of embroidery floss at the top for hanging. Tie the ends together in a knot at the bottom and trim any excess floss. Alternately, you could also use the glue gun to secure each ripple of the candy ribbon, but I find the embroidery floss method to be much faster and less messy!
