Christmas Oreo Truffles

December 18, 2018, in
'Tis the season for holiday parties and for holiday cookie swaps!  Even though I eat healthily and share nutritious recipes I like to treat myself to all the best the holiday has to offer.  I've been waiting for months to make Christmas cookies, and these oreo truffles are my top favorite.  I made them for a Christmas cookie swap & they were a big hit so I thought I would share the recipe with you!  The best part is it is a no-bake recipe with simple ingredients. (who can't say no to that!)

After the truffles have been refrigerated the melted chocolate will have hardened into a crunchy shell and the middle will be soft. 



Make sure you set a few aside for yourself  & indulge.  Then wrap the rest up and give as gifts or bring to your holiday party.

Hi friends, have you noticed the abstract art trend around shops and online too?  Abstract art is a big thing right now and I love it!  Over the years I've created Christmas decor with traditional colors, but sometimes there is nothing better than adding a modern vibe to a classic idea.

Today's project is one of those classics.  I used Ball Mason Jar Lids to create DIY Christmas ornaments to hang on my tree or to give as gifts.  I used fabric with a geometric abstract pattern to add my own twist to this classic favorite.   Click through for the tutorial and my DIY photos.

Materials for DIY Abstract Fabric Christmas Ornaments 
I had four mason jar lids on hand and one embroidery hoop that I thought would be fun for this project.  The fabric that I used was left over from a bench reupholstery project.  You can check that out HERE.  I purchased the fabric in-store at Walmart by Waverly Inspirations at a super affordable price for five dollars a yard!!

Instructions for Abstract Fabric Christmas Ornaments

Start by spray painting the lids in a well-ventilated area.  I recommend laying newspaper or cardboard outside and giving the lids one to two even coats of paint.  While waiting for the lids to dry use the cap as a template. Place the cap on top of the fabric then trace around it and cut it out. Once the lids are dry put a bead of glue around the inside of each lid and place the cut fabric face down inside the lid.  Press along the edges of the fabric and lid so it is glued in place. Wait a few minutes for the glue to dry then put a bead of glue around the outer edge of the lid. Add a long piece of ribbon on top of the glue and double knot the ends together after wrapping around the lid.  Next tie the two ends of the ribbon together for hanging.

Hang the ornaments on a lit or unlit Christmas tree.  The ornaments add sparkle to the tree when hung in front of the lights.  Or give as a gift wrapped around a Christmas present.
