  • full size candies
  • miniature candies
  • wooden dowels

  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.

candy bar bouquet

Materials:

  • 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

Instructions:

    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.
