[birthday week] candy bouquets


here's a fun gift for that hard to buy for someone.
a candy bouquet.
you can cater these to men, women and children of all ages.
they also make a really fun way to give a gift card!


here's what you'll need:
-a container. our white one came from michaels and the cups came from walmart's party section.
-floral foam.
-low temp glue gun.
-skinny sticks. grabbed mine at walmart, but i saw them at michaels as well.
-candy.
-crinkled paper shreds.
-gift card. (optional)


the steps:
-put your floral foam into your container.
-take your skinny sticks and glue them to the backs of your candy.
-then just start sticking them in. play around with it. have fun. (don't over think it like i did at first)
-tuck your crinkled shreds around the base of the sticks and behind the candy. don't forget the back too.
-add a gift card if you'd like.




















these are actually really fun to make.
and a pretty cheap, but fun way to give a gift card.
especially these little ones below.








i'll take mine with just a bunch of York peppermint patties please! :)

  2. My parents made one for my husband (but with multiples on a stick) when I had my baby. He shared with the nurses and was a very quick favorite among them. The nurses shared the news at the nurses station and we got lots of nurses popping in our room for a treat.

  9. Can I see the back of your bouquet? I need to make one that is a centerpiece so you need to be able to view it from all sides. Thanks.
