Sweetie wreath

This wreath is a great use of those boxes of chocolate you have at Christmas, making a really colourful display to show alongside your traditional decorations.

All you need is a wire coat hanger, sewing thread, chocolates and some patience! For reference I used Quality Street and this was a tub and a box.

Take the wire coat hanger and bend it into a circular shape, open the chocolates (you can eat all the chocolates without a twist end) and cut off a length of thread.

Tie one end of the thread onto the hanger, bring a chocolate up to the hanger and start looping the thread around one twisty end of a chocolate. A couple of loops around should be enough to secure it, I also looped the thread around the hanger as well to make sure it was secure. It also helps to keep the chocolate nice and tight against the hanger. Continue adding chocolates as you work your way around the hanger. You can have it as sparse or as full as you prefer.

To add more thread just cut off another length and tie it onto the thread you’re already using to extend it. Once you reach the end of the hanger and you’re happy with the look you can just tie the thread off on the hanger in a knot. This was my wreath!
