DIY Cookie Wreath

Sweeten a dinner party with a sugar-dusted wreath made from gingerbread stars.

1. Order cookies from a bakery or bake them using a gingerbread house recipe (cookies need to be extra-sturdy). Try this recipe.

2. Cut a round base 14" in diameter from craft cardboard, then an inner hole 4-1/2" in diameter.

3. Cover the base in tinfoil, punch two holes in the top and thread with a loop of florist's wire.

4. "Glue" cookies to the base with royal icing. Place first layer around outer edge, overlapping cookies so the foil is hidden. Let dry. Attach a second layer overlapping the first to hide the interior edge of base.

5. When dry, dust with icing sugar.

6. Wrap a satin ribbon around the top, and hang by wire loop.
