How to Make a Candy Bouquet

STEP 1: Using a heavy-duty tape, like duck tape, attach one skewer to the back of each candy bar. I attached the tape at the top and the bottom to make sure that it would be secure!

STEP 2: Grab your bucket and stuff it with a styrofoam block or ball. I used a styrofoam ball and cut it in half. I also had to put a small weight at the bottom to balance out all those candy bars! Chocolate is heavy!

STEP 3: Once your bucket is ready to go and all your candy has been attached to the wooden skewers, you’re ready to start placing the skewers into the styrofoam ball.

STEP 4: To make your candy bouquet look polished, add something to the base of the candy bars like tissue paper, crinkle paper, tulle or ribbon! We added some tissue paper and crinkle paper for a little pop of color and fun. We thought gold was the perfect pairing with all the yellows, blues, reds, and browns from the candy bars. Pick which looks best for you!

STEP 5: To make the perfect candy bar bouquet, you’ll want to play with spacing, levels, and layers to get the look that you want! You’ll especially want to pay attention to the candy bar wrapper’s color to make sure that the colors are distributed evenly. Don’t be afraid to move the candy bars around even after you’ve placed them.

STEP 6: Last but not least, grab a card and write a sweet note to the special someone you are gifting this too! The pictured cards (printable pdf linked below!) open up and have space for you to add a little note inside. Let them know how much you love them!!!

  1. Loved this idea! My husband needed a new fishing license. So from my kids and I, I decided to do one with a fishing theme. I got him the license, gummy worms, swedish fish, a cool gummy x-ray fish, and some fishing bobbers. I cut out some big fish from colored card stock, glued the sucker sticks on the backs, and taped the treats to them. I wrapped them in the tissue paper and tied it with a bow. On the tag I put…For a “REEL-Y” SWEET Dad! We’re “HOOKED” on you! Happy Fathers Day! Then I printed off some cut and color fish online, and the kids and I colored them. We each wrote him a note on the back of our fish. I hooked them all together with fishing line and attached them to the tag. It turned out super cute! Can’t wait to give it to him! Thanks for the inspiration to get me thinking!

  2. Love this! We are making a bouquet for my father and husband – ended up suing kabob sticks (97 cents for 100) and the mini candy bars with paper flowers stuck behind the candy.

  3. Super cute, Corie! I have seen this idea before…..and always laugh because although BOTH Jamie & I would love this….we are soooooo trying to cut down on sweets! 🙂 Yer man is gonna be in heaven!
