Candy Bouquet With Candy Vase

Candy bouquets are a fun gift to give or receive, but they can be expensive to buy! Luckily they are easy to make yourself and much cheaper.

Approximate Time: 40 minutes


  • 4 "movie boxes" of candy (all the same size)
  • full size candies
  • miniature candies
  • wooden dowels
  • floral foam block
  • hot glue gun
  • tissue paper


  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. making candy vasegluing edge
  3. Measure the opening in the vase. Cut the floral block down to fit inside. Cut it about 1/2 inch shorter than the vase, too. Insert it into the vase.
  4. inserting foam
  5. 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.

Making a Valentine's Day Candy Bouquet

Valentine's Day Candy BouquetFlowers are beautiful and a delightful gift to receive, but you can't eat them. Try this candy bouquet instead or in addition to the traditional bouquet of flowers. This is a guide about making a Valentine's Day candy bouquet.

Mother's Day Candy Bar Bouquet

candy bar bouquet


  • 2 fern silk flowers
  • 3 silk roses
  • 6 candy bars
  • 6 candy bars wrappers from professional or make up
  • your own with computer
  • 6 plastic floral card holders
  • green tissue paper
  • curling ribbon or cloth ribbon


    Take candy bars and wrap with professional candy wrappers as I did. I sell these glossy wrappers, but you can do something similar with your computer or gift wrap and lettering.

  1. Wrap bars and attach to plastic floral picks the kind similar to when you purchase real flowers and there is a card attached, but these are a bit wider to hold candy bar.
  2. Place several sheets of green tissue at a diagonal and place ferns and candy bars and flowers. Wrap tissue and tie with bow. This can also be done for graduations, birthdays, whatever.
