Let's talk about how to make candy bouquet for a great gift idea or to use as centerpieces at your next party.

There really are a lot of different candy bouquet ideas, depending on what your personal preferences are, or perhaps the theme of the occasion. 

If you are planning on staying within a particular color combination, you'll want wrappers that either match the color scheme, or at the least, don't clash too drastically.

Think about all the different candy bouquet ideas you've seen over the years. They are great for so many different occasions.

Have you ever been in a situation where you didn't know what to get that person that has everything and their birthday is in a couple of days? 

Are you thinking of giving something romantic? How about flowers? Hmmm, forget Flowers! Flowers die. Instead, give that person a gift that will be remembered. 

Bouquets of flowers are always nice, and certainly have their place, but they tend to wilt and die. Try giving a bouquet that only disappears if eaten by the recipient -- a candy bouquet. Learning how to make candy bouquet is really not that hard and they are really fun to give as gifts. 

Some candy bouquet ideas are arrangements made to mimic a flower arrangement, except that different types of candy are used instead of flowers. These can be customized according to the person's tastes. It's a unique, one-of-a-kind gift that will make a lasting impression,

Other candy bouquet ideas can be used as eye catching centerpieces and delicious personal gifts. A candy bouquet can be given during any kind of special occasion.

Making a candy bouquet is also a great way of spending time together with your family or friends. If you are throwing a party or shower, get your girlfriends together and work on the decorations and favors together.

Candy centerpieces also make wonderful handmade gifts that will be heartily welcomed by anybody. Who does not like candy? The following information provides instructions on how to make candy bouquet, simply and easily.

Candy Bouquet - How To Make:

There are several different styles of candy bouquets you could make. Here are some steps to make one particular kind. If you have other ideas for making candy bouquets, please add them below. If you've got a photo, even better!

To make a candy bouquet you'll need the following basics...

  • a flowerpot (or some base)
  • florist foam
  • ribbon
  • lollipop sticks or skewers
  • 1" inch wide green ribbon
  • low-temperature glue gun
  • shredded paper
  • Wrapped Candy of your choice

For this type of candy bouquet, I suggest you choose larger types of wrapped treats such as candy bars, cookie pops, moldedchocolates, rainbow lollipops, and other wrapped goodies of the appropriate size.

Be sure to buy enough wrapped treats to make a full bouquet according to the size of the flowerpot. 

The flowerpot can be big or small, and it can be plastic, terracotta, or ceramic. Choose a flowerpot or base with a design, or decorate it yourself. 

Craft supplies to decorate the flowerpot can include craft paint, paper twist, faux gems, and spray-on glitter. Other embellishments to consider are buttons, flat marbles, scrapbook stickers, small polished stones, and any other decorations you desire. 

Use your imagination to come up with ideas for embellishments to personalize the bouquet.

To assemble:

  1. Wrap your lollipop sticks or skewers with the green florist tape to resemble stems. 

  2. Attach the wrapped candy to the stems using the hot glue gun.

  3. Insert the foam into your base or pot and then push each candy flower into the foam making a nice arrangement. 

  4. Use your shredded paper to cover the foam and make your arrangement more attractive.

Candy bouquet ideas are a very easy candy craft project, and I am sure the person who receives yours will love this sweet gift and the thought behind it. 

You can add a beautiful greeting card and/or stuffed animal to this Candy Bouquet if you wish. 

Giving gifts is a surprisingly complex and important part of human interaction, helping to define relationships and strengthen bonds with family and friends. Besides that, it's just a whole lot of fun! The Bible says, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." I couldn't agree more. :) I hope learning how to make candy bouquet makes your gift giving a little easier.
