Yes-did you read that title? Chocolate. Made into a lei. For graduation. Just straight up smart right? The graduate is the one that’s supposed to be smart because they are graduating, but you’ll be the one who looks smart because you thought to make a chocolate lei. And out of Lindt truffles no less. People, it doesn’t get any better?! In fact, you probably better make one for yourself too, right? Here’s a peek at our DIY Graduation Lei made from chocolate.
Seriously! How much fun is this? A unique twist on a classic, but more fun, because it’s chocolate. And it’s easy to make. The two of us sat down to make this and it took us about ten minutes with the two of us working.
How to Make a Graduation Lei:
- Lindt Truffles-It will take 20-25 to make one lei. (Choose any color-we did these because they are bright and we love bright, but you can use any. They have a bunch of colors here.)
- Curling Ribbon
That’s it! That’s all you need.
Now, to make this, simple overlap two of the ends of the truffle wrappers (overlap as far as you can get them) and then cut a small piece of curling ribbon and tie it around them.
Just keep doing this until you’ve got enough to form the circle and you’re set!
You’ll want to curl the ends of them once you’ve got them all tied.
Too much fun!
Have FUN celebrating graduation!
