DIY LINDOR Chocolate Truffle Wreath
A big thank you to Lindt Chocolate for sponsoring this fun craft!
My daughters and I always look forward to holiday crafting, and this year we wanted to make something fun and innovative that we could turn into a yearly tradition. Since we are such huge fans of smooth, melt-in-your-mouth LINDOR Chocolate truffles, we decided to create a chocolate wreath! We plan to eat the chocolates together on Christmas Eve, so you know Ava and Aura are especially excited!! We went to Walmart to buy the LINDOR Chocolates and crafting goods, and I was blown away by their vast holiday selection and amazing prices! We decided to use the LINDOR Milk Chocolate truffles and the LINDOR White Chocolate truffles to make a red and gold wreath (and they are our absolute favorites). Adra was so excited about all the goodies! This will be her first year watching us do a Christmas craft! ;) To get started, you'll need:
-LINDOR Chocolate truffles (colors/flavors of choice)
-Choice of ribbons (red, gold and sparkle white)
-Tulle (gold sparkle)
-Accent sprigs of choice (I did sparkle gold eucalyptus and white berries)
-Battery operated LED light string
-Wire cutters and scissors
Start by adding the greenery to the wire wreath, securing it with floral wire. Remove select pinecones as needed.
Finish filling the wire wreath with greenery. You may need to add in a few extra cuttings to fill in any empty spaces. Next, twist floral wire on each side of the LINDOR Chocolate truffle, and twist the wires down into one as pictured below. Secure the LED light base to the back of the wire wreath using floral wire. Next, wrap the lights around the wreath, spreading them out evenly.
Once the LED lights are spread out accordingly, follow that same process, but this time wrapping the tulle around the wreath.
Once you have completed the steps above, yule (hehe) want to make the LINDOR Chocolate truffle ornament clusters and ribbon fillers. For the ribbon fillers, cut small strips and make loops (some with three loops, some with only one) in different colors and sizes. Secure the ribbon fillers to the wreath using the floral wire. For the clusters, take 3 floral wired LINDOR Chocolate truffles (or 5 depending on preference/wreath size) and twist them together into a bouquet. Then, add the floral sprigs and ribbon. Secure each cluster together using floral wire. After the cluster bouquets are completed, use floral wire to secure them to the wreath. If you are making a larger wreath, you will want to make more clusters, but I would recommend an odd number (i.e. 3, 5, 7, etc).
Add a large bow to the top of the wreath. I made my bow with a gold wired ribbon and tulle, then added some gold sparkle ribbon (but you can easily add a ready made bow). Next, use ribbon fillers and extra floral sprigs to fill in the wreath. Viola! A LINDOR Chocolate truffle wreath! We are all looking forward to eating the chocolate truffles on Christmas Eve! We will definitely make this a yearly tradition and add new LINDOR Chocolate truffles each year to come! I love the LED lights! Such a pretty touch for the evenings! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
