3 unusually edible Christmas decorations ideas

This year, why not alternate your family's favourite decorations with something creative, crafty, and totally edible!

From picture perfect wreaths to glinting, glimmering baubles, check out our top three edible Christmas decoration ideas below.

Mini meringue wreaths

We're dreaming of a white Christmas thanks to these elegant meringue wreath decorations. Just as sophisticated as they are sweet, these decorations will look great hung up on your tree, turned into bunting using some colourful ribbon, or even as wine glass charms. Find our instructions for how to make them here.

Boiled sweet baubles

For elegant Christmas ornaments that glint and glimmer in the light, you don't need to invest in expensive glass baubles that are both fragile and a safety hazard.

These boiled sweet baubles are surprisingly easy to make, and even easier to personalise according to your Christmas tree's colour themes and your family's personal tastes. Kids can even get involved with the arranging of boiled sweets within the cutters -- just make sure any jobs to do with the oven and while the baubles are still hot are left to an adult.

gift tag biscuits

Who doesn't love an iced biscuit, or "sugar cookie", come Christmas? These sweet little biscuit gift tags triple up as Christmas decorations, dining table place settings, and a midnight snack for Santa!

You don't need a gift tag-shaped biscuit cutter - just draw out the shape onto a piece of baking paper, cut it out and use it as a template on the biscuit dough to cut around. Get creative with different shaped biscuits and different coloured icings. You could even write each person in your family's name onto a biscuit using an icing pen!
