I’ve been listening to Christmas songs, compiling my annual ‘Christmas Gift Guide’ blog posts, and indulging in Christmas mince pies. I think it’s safe to say I’m officially in the Christmas spirit! To celebrate the festive season, Lindt asked me to share a crafty DIY project using their delectable LINDOR milk chocolate truffles. During the month of December there is always a wreath hanging outside our front door, I find it so welcoming and cheerful! Today I’ll be showing you how to make your very own Christmas wreath. There’s no better way to welcome friends and family during the holidays than with this unique twist on the traditional Christmas wreath. I’m Day 5 in the “12 Days Of Lindt Christmas” series this year:
Be sure to read until the very end of the blog post, because there’s a surprise waiting…
Here’s how you can make your own Christmas wreath at home:
♥ 20 x LINDOR Milk Chocolate Truffles (for extra pizzazz tie red ribbons on one end of each truffle)
♥ Wire wreath frame (30cm – 50cm)
♥ Floral tape (or hot glue gun)
♥ Holly or berries
♥ Festive ribbon bow
Gather all the materials and lay them out on a large, flat surface.
Assemble wreath by taking pieces of cut foliage and tying them with tape to the wire frame. Follow the natural curve of the branches.
Continue layering pieces in the same direction, taping tightly. Exposed wire will get covered as you go along.
When you have come all the way around, simply tape ends tightly to one another. Cut tape and do a few extra twists to secure.
Cover any visible wire by using smaller stems. Add decorative elements, such as holly or berries.
Place the LINDOR truffles around the wreath and tie or glue in place. Add a pretty bow by securing it with wire or glue gun. And voila!
