Are you having withdrawals from the Olympics? We don’t blame you – after 17 days of enjoying exciting international competition and not having to worry about whether anything good was on TV, it’s hard not to! If you still have some leftover Olympic spirit, a great way to channel it is by getting crafty. We’ve got you covered with a quick and easy project you can work on: making chocolate coin medals! These make great party favors or random gifts for friends. You can also work on this project with kids for a fun rainy day activity.
What you’ll need:
- chocolate coins – large coins in assorted colors or tones work best
- a small bowl or dish, such as a small casserole dish
- grosgrain ribbon in a print or color of your choice, 1 inch wide
- glue gun
- double-sided tape
- blank round stickers – look for stickers that are the same size as your chocolate coins
What to do:
- If you plan on making multiple medals, use a small bowl or dish to keep your coins handy. Grab your first coin and cover one side with double-sided tape.
- Cut a piece of ribbon that is 22 inches long, or as desired. Use your glue gun to apply glue to one end of the ribbon; then press the other end into the glue to attach the two ends.
- Once the glue is dry, press the ends you just attached into the double-sided tape.
- If you’ll be giving the medal away, use a Sharpie to write a brief message, such as “#1 friend,” on a blank round sticker for a personal touch.
- Use the sticker to cover the back of your chocolate coin medal and hide the ribbon.
