Make your own Chocolate Place Setting–Santa's Sleigh

I stumbled upon this idea tutorial for a Christmas Sleigh gift and thought it would make the most fabulous place settings for the Christmas dinner table.

Well who doesn’t love chocolate? Not many that's for sure.

The idea for the place setting only came when I gave my daughter a peek at what I was making for Jack and she cried “I want one too Mam” so what was once to be only two or three soon became eight that I needed.

I ran out of bits for my place setting so I still have 1 left to complete but I was itching to show you all.

Aren’t they sweet? (pardon the pun) I even found some little chocolate Santa’s to drive the sleigh.

As you can see we have candy canes, KitKat, miniature Cadbury chocolate, Kinder bars, chocolate coins and in the adult ones Dime Bars. I tied it all together with ribbon from Ribbon Carousel

Come on get out those glue guns and set to work on a treat to remember at the Christmas dinner table.

Hi Jak,

Thanks for showing these. I had seen them before and forgot about them. I think these are even more fun with Santa driving the sleigh.
