Holiday Gifts: Chocolate Christmas Wreath by Melinda

Chocolate always seems to creep it's way into our Christmas decorations, whether hanging from the Christmas tree or adorning a garland strung across a doorway. However, considering our Christmas here in Australia is in the middle of Summer the chocolate never lasts until December 25... "oh mum, it was melting I promise"!

Now I will fully admit this wreath isn't being gifted to anyone other than my doorway because I cannot bare to part with it now that it's made. And I'm already down one chocolate in the few hours it's being hanging as Master 5 cannot help himself. But hey, it's Christmas after all.

I purchased a foam ring for the base and then used three of the super cute Milk & Cookies cut files to create the pieces I needed to put the wreath together.

Then it was a matter of layering all the holly leaves and snowflakes to cover the foam before attaching the little Christmas puddings. I also decided to use Sprinkles for the eyes and cheeks instead of the flat paper pieces of the cut files as I thought the extra dimension would add to the sweetness of the little faces.

To finish the wreath I added the chocolate Lindt balls with foam pop dots... this is definitely not a time to be using a glue gun when chocolate is involved.

 Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I've given you some ideas for your Christmas decorations, especially if you plan on adding yummy chocolate.
