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.

Total Time: 40 minutes

Supplies:

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. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Arrange the candies into a bouquet by poking them into the foam. Once you are happy with the arrangement, carefully remove the foam block from the vase.
  5. Set the foam block onto a piece of tissue paper, then pull the sides up to cover the block. Gently side the foam block back into the vase. Arrange the tissue edges to cover up the exposed dowels.
