Steps:

  1. Run a line of glue down the side of one box, then attach it to back of a second box. Repeat until all four boxes are attached to form the vase.
  2. finished vase
  3. Set the piece of cardboard under the vase and use a pencil to trace around the vase. Cut the cardboard to create a bottom for the vase. Turn the vase over and glue it to the bottom of the vase.
  4. glue on bottom
  5. Cut the floral foam block down, so that the top of it is an inch or so below the top of the vase. Put glue on the bottom of the foam block and glue it inside the vase.

  9. Put Easter grass down in the recess of the vase, to cover the foam block.

  11. Run a line of hot glue down the back of each large candy bar. Attach the dowel and allow to dry. Repeat with the mini candy bars. NOTE: If you glue the dowel onto the loose flap on the back of the candy bar, you may want to put a small amount of glue under the flap to hold it in place. This will keep the candy from flopping around on the dowel.

  13. Once the glue is dry on the candies, begin poking them down into the foam block.
  14. add doweled candy
  15. Once you have the doweled candies in the bouquet, begin arranging the loose candy around the bouquet. Fluff the Easter grass up around the dowels.
