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!!!
Is this not the perfect gift idea, or what?! You could gift this sweet bouquet time and time again to let someone know that you love and appreciate having them in your life! 🙂
