I love flowers, but sometimes it is fun to give a gift that is a little more unique. This tasty DIY Candy Bouquet is cute, delicious, and costs less than $10 to make.
To make your own candy bouquet, head to the dollar store and pick out some of the recipients favorite treats. (I used a lot of "mini" bars and a couple of full size ones... but you can choose whatever you like. Healthier options will work too.) You'll also need to purchase a box, floral foam, BBQ skewers, tape, and tissue paper.
1) Cut floral foam to fit snuggly inside the box.
2) Using a hot glue gun, attach treats to BBQ skewers.
3) Add tissue paper embellishments to the "candy flowers" (if desired). Secure with tape.
4) Insert "candy flowers"into the floral foam, and hide the foam by sticking tissue paper into the box.
That's it! Pretty cute right? Do you know someone who would like to receive this DIY Candy Bouquet?
