4
pieces (about 36 inches each) red shoestring licorice
1/3
cup CheeriosĀ® cereal

package (1 1/4 oz) pastel-colored tube-shaped licorice candies
1/2
cup colored miniature marshmallows
1
tablespoon powdered sugar
  1. Onto each piece of shoestring licorice, string an arrangement of cereal, candies and marshmallows (to prevent stickiness, dip 1 end of licorice into powdered sugar before poking licorice through each marshmallow).
  2. When each licorice is 3/4 full, tie ends of licorice together into a double knot to make a necklace.

A single Cheerios cereal "O" measures about 1/2 inch across, so it takes about 24 O's to make a foot.
