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!

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!

    Wouldn’t the chocolate possibly melt due to your body heat? Are the chocolates double wrapped to prevent this? For the same reason, you’d probably want to avoid putting the garlands right by the fireplace.

      It wasn’t a problem for us. Maybe you have a really hot bod though 😉

    These are totally cute. I do hope that should we make these for Christmas, the kids won’t eat the chocolate all up before party’s over. 😀

    This is great! I love these chocolates too…I wonder how many I’d eat while putting a necklace together…
    Can I ask where the beautiful dress the model’s wearing is from?

    So much fun! I might make one to hang on our tree and you still have the little bows for decoration when all the chocolate is gone… which wouldn’t be very long in our house!

    This is super cute and WOW! – what a beautiful dress! Is it Anthro?

    Can you tell us where you got those colorful mini trees? And, the mini trees featured in your Modern Holiday Decorating post from earlier this week? They are all awesome! Thanks in advance 🙂
