I wasn't going to post this as it turned out a bit wonky in the photo - but hey, I'm a "warts n all" sort of girl, so here is my indoor wreath - indoor for obvious reasons.
You need to use a synthetic oasis wreath - I used a polystyrene one which led to the wonkiness and also hurt my thumb!! Make a hanger at the back using a length of stiff florists wire. Cover it with tin foil and wrap some old tinsel around it. Cut lengths of florists wire into 1 inch (approx) pieces and bend in half to form pins, then pin on your favorite wrapped sweets. Pin a bauble to hang on the bottom if you feel the need. Et Voila .
Lovely and yummy..but how long will last the sweets up???!!
Thats brilliant - wouldn't last a day in my house with my chocolate munching mice aka the boys :)
Oooh yum, but it wouldn't last an hour with me nearby.... Thankyou for your lovely words and the children coped beautifully today.
Doesn't look wonky to me! It's a lovely idea, and those sweets look very tempting!
I really like this idea - clever you!!!
It looks lovely - wart 'n' all, but the sweets wouldn't last very long in my house - unless they are coffee, strawberry or orange fondant 'yuk!'
Great idea - love the twinkly tinsel and shiny sweet wrappers - have you counted them so you notice if one goes missing? Like the heart bauble:)
Looks delicious, but wouldn't last long around here!!:0)
The heart just sets it off. Now promise me that the sweets wont still be in their wrappings in thirty years time........ (like the tree decoration ones, tee! hee!) X
Yummy and shiny!
great fun but wouldn't last two seconds here either ...except for strawberry, orange or coffee ones - what a great idea !
Ooh I hope you're going to eat those sweets!!! I'd be tempted to pull one off everytime I walked past it!!
IT's not wonky - it's inspired!!
I love it but the sweets are having enough trouble staying in the jar at the moment, never mind on a wreath!
Thats marvellous, but really if I had been making it, the chocs would NEVER have made it as far as the wreath, they would have accidentally bypassed my mouth... :D
Well done, its very inventive and very, very festive looking!
(ps: yes, the article you asked about is in The Star, not sure when - Im waiting for the people to arrive this very afternoon!!)
Love Julia xxx
It looks wicked - very retro! Cool! xxx
very christmassy, aren't you clever! x x
Edible decorations, the best and of course they can be replenished.
I think that's brilliant. Will the choccies gradually disappear?
