A candy bouquet is a fun alternative to flowers on Valentine's day. You don't need to spend a lot of money on one at a store either. They are super easy to make and making your own allows you to customize it for your loved one!
4 boxes of Valentine's M & Ms
Hershey's mini candy bars
York peppermint hearts
Reese's PB heart
Russell Stover's strawberry heart
boxes of conversation hearts
chocolate heart lollipop
other assorted candy
floral foam block
hot glue gun
Glue the M & Ms boxes together to form a vase.
Cut the floral foam block down to fit inside. Cut it to be about 1 inch below the top of the vase.
Cut two squares of tissue paper and use them to cover the floral foam.
Use a pencil sharpener to sharpen the end of the dowels.
Glue mini candy bars to the dowel. Then glue a second layer on to cover the dowel completely.
Glue Dove hearts onto the dowel. Then turn the dowel over and cover the backside with more hearts.
Glue bigger candy onto dowels. You may need to use extra glue to keep them on the dowel, since they are heavy.
Begin arranging the candy, by pushing the dowels into the foam block.
Tuck additional tissue paper around the bottom of the candy to cover up the exposed dowels.
You can glue additional candy onto shorter dowels to fill in empty spaces.
Wrap curling ribbon around the vase and tie it. Create a bow and curl the ends.
