Gold Mini-Wreath Cupcake Toppers DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Add just a little bit of sparkle to your cupcakes with these simple gold mini-wreaths. Bonus – they are so easy they take about 10 minutes to make, and 7 minutes of that is waiting for the hot clue gun to heat up! You can alter the bows to match your party décor colors. Wouldn’t a bright red bow be so cute too?

Crepe Paper Swirlers

by Kathleen Ballos

These DIY crepe paper swirlers are really simple to make, but they are so fun to play with! If you like taking pictures while waving sparklers around, these are a good indoor alternative. I made these with New Years Eve in mind, but I think they’d be fun for any party. You could even make some matching confetti throwers!

Chocolate Necklace DIY

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!
