Today I’m partnering with Lindt to bring you the DIY for these fun little holiday party necklaces. I’m a big fan of making festive decorations that your guests can wear (remember these and these?) These necklaces are even more awesome because they double as favors (or hang them on each chair for a dinner party for your guests to enjoy later.) Lindt LINDOR Truffles are perfect for these because their packaging is so shiny and colorful like jewels (I love the LINDOR Truffles and how they melt in your mouth!) They also make great gifts for co-workers and neighbors and can double as holiday garlands around the house. Last month I went to the Lindt Chocolate factory in New Hampshire where I got to see the process and high Swiss standards of their Master Chocolatiers. I’ve been a fan for years so it was really impressive to see. Click through below for the full instructions!
Supplies: Lindt LINDOR Truffles, Ribbon, Crepe Paper, Scissors
Step 1: Make the necklace base. Cut a piece of ribbon to your desired necklace length and begin tying the Lindt chocolates to the ribbon.
Step 2: Cut pieces of crepe paper in different colors that are about 2” x 5”. Make sure the grain of the paper is vertical.
Step 3: Stretch the pieces of paper out so they get longer.
Step 4: Fold the papers into fans.
Step 5: Using a piece of ribbon the same color as the base necklace, tie a knot in the center of each fan so that it creates a strand of bows.
Step 6: Tie the strand of bows to the chocolate necklace base.
Step 7: Give to friends!
