I made this yummy candy bouquet this morning for my husband and kids. I’m sorry for posting on Valentine’s Day instead of earlier this week, but that seems to be how I roll these days… This could easily be customized for any holiday!
The first step is to tape the candy to bamboo skewers. These are sharp on one end and could probably poke right into the candy, but I didn’t want holes in my chocolate. I used packing tape, and the skewers are from Kroger. You will want to attach the candy in different areas of the stick so they will be at different heights in the vase.
Next, I filled a vase with Reese’s cups, confetti, and the candy topped skewers.
To keep the candy and skewers in place I rolled up tulle and cello wrap pieces and stuck the rolls in between the candy bars. This project made me realize the insane amount of craft supplies I have laying around my house… If you don’t happen to have these, try colored tissue or wrapping paper.
Bow making is not a strength of mine. I have tons of ribbon, so I was determined to make my own pretty bow. I tried watching many videos with no luck, but finally found instructions I could easily follow at instructables.com. Not bad for my first homemade bow…
I love how it turned out! The ready made candy bouquets at Kroger were about $25. I made mine for $13 and was able to pick our favorite candies, with extra chocolate left over.
Happy Valentine’s Day!!!
