Pile Treats on these Ribbon Wreath Plates

Holiday Treat Ribbon Plate

During the Holidays, our neighbors and friends tend to be the recipients of our baking and candy making. Here’s a fun way to share your Holiday treats with these Ribbon Wreath Plates, because we all know the Holidays are a little more special with yummy treats.
Supplies for Holiday Ribbon Plates:

  • paper plates, any color or size (you can use plastic plates, but they’re harder to punch)
  • hole punch
  • ribbon, craft ribbon or curling ribbon
  • treats

Holiday Plate Supplies

Punch holes about every inch all the way around. Then pick a spot to start and thread the ribbon through each hole.

Hole Punch Ribbon Plates

There are a few ways you can thread the ribbon. It can be up and down or around and around. Both look pretty, so it just depends on your preference. It was easier for my kids to thread the ribbon around and around.

Ribbon Wreath Craft Plates

Once the ribbon has been through each hole, make sure both ends are even to tie it together in a bow. We added bells to the end of the ribbon on the plate below, adding a little more flare.

Christmas Plates for Holiday Treats

Now fill them with some of your favorite treats and they’re ready for family and friends! Happy Holidays!


  1. HI Marie!!

    We absolutely LOVE how you decorated up these plates. We are featuring this post on our blog today in our Feature Friday Mother’s Day gift ideas. We think that this would be a great way to dress up a plate of food for mom on Mother’s Day! Thanks for sharing. We will be following your blog on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest! We are giving this post a pin!
    Thanks for sharing! Stop over and see your feature!

  2. I have to know though, where did you get the treats, I have been craving those little waffle cookies all year and can’t find them anywhere. Oh please email me and let me know. The plates look so cute. I am definitely going to need to do this for neighborhood treats this year.

  3. What a great idea!!! And funny to see “stroopwafels” on the plate! One of my favorite cookies and indeed typical dutch!
    Greetings from Holland!

  4. Yvonne – We got these waffle cookies at the Costco in American Fork, but I think they were around just for the Holidays. I have seen them at the World Market store on 7200 south and 1300 east. Or else, my husband has gotten them at probably that same Old Dutch store!

  5. Marie, such a cute idea for presenting Christmas baking! Brilliant! Both my parents were born in the Netherlands, and I grew up with these yummy waffle cookies. I’m in the Salt Lake Valley, and the only place I can find them is The Old Dutch store on Highland drive. Would you mind telling me which Costco you found them at?

  6. That is such a clever idea! I usually look around for new crafty ideas like this one, but rarely find one as neat as this. Good Work!

  7. What a great idea. I plan on taking the kids to drop off some surprise treats for the neighbors and this would be perfect for packaging them.

  8. Molly – I’d love a link back. Thanks for asking!

    Heather & Stephanie – Yes, these are Dutch caramel waffle cookies. They’re soooo good. I got them at Costco, but glad to know they are available at Trader Joes. Now Utah just needs a TJ’s!!

  9. Such a great idea! But also ~ are those cookies on the plate the Dutch carmel filled waffle cookies?! I would go crazy if someone appeared at my door with a plate of those! My Dutch nephew brought me some last summer and they didn’t last long! Thankfully Trader Joes carries them too :)

  10. Hi! I would love to link to this in our Christmas Cookie newsletter that is going to be going out this coming Monday. We always do a tutorial and this would fit perfectly!

    I will include a link back to your blog and give you the credit! May I have permission to use?


  11. Thanks for the fun comments. These plates are such a fun and easy craft for the Holidays!

    Emily – I wish I had made those treats. They are Dutch caramel cookies I bought at Costco, some of my husbands favorites.

  12. Although the plates are awesome :) did you make those little waffley things in the first picture? I’ve been wanting to try a recipe like that for a while but haven’t been able to find one….(hint hint*) :)

  13. Love, love, love! So simple, yet festive. Definitely using this idea when I share my holiday cookies with all my neighbors…thanks!

  14. Love this, what a clever idea. I have spent way to much $ on cute plates to put treats on. I am totally going to do this! Thanks.

  15. Oh,yeah… this will definately be one I am doing this year! I have filed it at Thanks so much for the idea!
