Prepare to be wowed, because people are making festive charcuterie Christmas wreaths and they look so delicious.
The incredible designs are almost too good to eat, and have been popping up all over our Instagram feeds for the last few weeks.
Just look at them...
The trend was originally started by owner of Modern Brie, Cynthia Baysinger from Arizona. Cynthia's charcuterie boards are a big hit with her followers - and it's not hard to see why.
Made to resemble the more traditional wreaths created from foliage and festive flowers, the designs will blow you away. With roses made from slices of meat, teeny rounds of brie and pots of chutney, they really are a work of art.
They couldn't be easier to recreate, too. Just like any other charcuterie board, all you need is a selection of cheeses, meats of your choice and other bits and bobs such as chutneys, grapes, olives or nuts. And don't forget the greenery and foliage for the base!
Cynthia even shared a video tutorial of how to make a charcuterie wreath. In it, she explained the best method is to start with the greenery, before adding the larger decorative items (such as meat roses or bowls of chutney/jam).
Then, begin building the wreath by adding the meats diagonally. Cheeses should be added using the same method, before finishing off with fruits, nuts and other fillers and topping with fresh herbs, florals and the smallest decor.
And if you fancied creating something a little bit different, you could also opt for a sweet charcuterie board, instead of the traditional savoury items.
This can be achieved by simply swapping meats and cheeses for items such as candy canes, cookies, gingerbread men or mince pies!
Just look at all these incredible designs...
We know what we're making this weekend! Now to decide on savoury or sweet...
