I am having a Luau for my twins 7th birthday. Unfortunately we have been invited to so many luaus in the past year & I don't want to do my usual cookies (hibiscus, surfboards, honus, hula skirts etc). My very artistic (but not baking artistic) friend suggested cookie leis. At first I was like you are nuts. Then I got it in my head & now I "have" to do them. But i can't figure out how. I am not talking about cookie leis big enough for the kids to wear. A normal favor size cookie that looks like a lei. Any idea how I would do this? Am I nuts??

Thanks in advance, Val icon_surprised.gif)

I found these. Maybe you could make them on a smaller scale.

Remember when we all were kids and we strung macaroni on yarn (you know you did it).
Well, what if you make very small flower cookies( make a whole in them before baking) then string them on string candy or even gimp, and in between the cookies use either beads or cereal such as fruit loops or cheerio's.
I guess it depends on the age these are made for but, I bet 7 year old would love these....think candy necklaces!

What ever you choose, just have fun and enjoy the time with your kids, you could even have them string them or have all the kids at the party make their own!

I saw an idea here but I don't remember who made them. They are round cookies that have RI flowers attached to ir forming a lei.
