Is your pretzel necklace ready for the ACBF?

I found a photo of these sweet pretzel/onion ring combo necklace on the web...



I've been talking about those pretzel necklaces I saw last year at the American Craft Beer Fest, and was considering making my own for tomorrows festivities...

My buddy Kenn asked via email this AM, "You making a pretzel necklace this year?" After that, I found my thoughts turning to the concept throughout the day, especially when work got dull...

Dave called this evening and left a message indicating he was considering making his own for tomorrow's ACBF. I think we all have too much free time on our hands. When I called Dave back he asked, "How do you make them? I mean, I got a bag of pretzels, but what's next? How do you avoid the pretzels from collecting like a giant salty pendant?" OK, I paraphrased a little, but that's the gist of it, and it got me thinking...
How do you make a pretzel necklace?

Let's consult the interweb shall we? ehow.com has a quick how-to for making Oktoberfest pretzel necklaces. We aren't heading out to Oktoberfest, but the concept should work for our ACBF purposes too...

The trick is, "Thread the twine through the loops of one of the hard pretzels, going over and under so that the pretzel lays flat. Cut two small pieces of colored ribbon and tie them tightly on either side of the pretzel, securing it to the twine. Repeat with the soft pretzel, then the other hard pretzel" Bottom line, it's all about the ribbon...

Kids, don't try this at home...
"Always be careful while eating and walking, as this action presents a choking hazard."
