10 DIY Edible Food Wreaths
The holiday season is here and this year you’ve decided to throw a huge party! You’re not the craftiest person in the world, but you still want to add some festive elements to your gathering.
Making a food wreath for the holidays is incredibly easy and adds festive, fun food to your home. These aren't wreaths to hang on the door or over the mantelpiece — they're for the table, where, once you've had a good look at them, your guests can tear into them for a delicious appetizer or after-dinner treat. From refreshing salad arrays to displays of decadent desserts, we’ve compiled a list of awesome, simple wreath ideas for your holiday party.
Caprese Salad Wreath
Skewer two cherry tomatoes with one soft mozzarella ball using toothpicks to create your caprese salad. Make enough of these to lay side-by-side in a circular wreath that’s filled with festive red and white. Have the platter sit on a bed of basil for a more wreath-like background. Be sure to drizzle the top with balsamic vinegar to make this salad appetizer tangy and refreshing.
Chicken, Spinach, and Artichoke Wreath
This circular pull-apart wreath is a great warming appetizer for a holiday soirée. The golden bread exterior is filled with warm, creamy spinach dip. This party favorite will easily become at staple at all of your holiday gatherings.
Cinnamon Roll Wreath
Take the cinnamon roll dough log and make small cuts along one side of it to allow the pieces to spread out. Make sure you don’t completely slice one roll from the next, so they still come together as a baked wreath. Next, fan this dough out into a circle and bake. Drizzle with glaze for a sweet breakfast treat.
Make this wreath as a fun family activity for a delicious dinner. Simply cut a whole in the center of your pizza dough to make a dough wreath. Have everyone’s personal dough wreaths ready for them to customize, and lay out a topping bar filled with green veggies, like spinach and broccoli, and red toppings, like pepperoni and tomatoes. Don’t forget to make a bow out of red peppers for extra glam. With these tips, your dinner wreaths will be picture perfect in no time!
Rice Krispies Treat Wreath
Rice Krispies Treats taste amazing and can be shaped into just about anything. Simply use green food coloring to dye the melted marshmallows green, and combine them with the Rice Krispies for your dough. Shape this into a wreath and decorate with holly berries and mistletoe sprinkles. You can make one big wreath for a holiday party or individual wreaths for your kids to decorate.
