Candy bouquet tutorial


Hello my friends! Happy Tuesday! Yesterday me and my hubs celebrated our Anniversary, so I thought it would be fun to make him a candy bouquet to celebrate. We used to make these in Student Council as teacher gifts. They’re great for Birthdays and Father’s Day gifts as well. Here’s what you need to get started…


  • styrofoam block
  • popsicle sticks
  • 10+ candy bars
  • hot glue
  • raffia or tissue paper

The first thing you’ll do is glue a box of candy around each edge of the styrofoam.

Then you’ll glue the candy bars onto the popsicle sticks.

Once the glue is dry, stick the candy in the styrofoam to create your bouquet.  To hide the popsicle sticks, you can glue raffia or tissue paper around the edges.

That’s it! Pretty simple gift, that everyone loves!

Seriously who wouldn’t love to receive a bouquet full of candy?! ;)

    Such a great idea. I have just found Easter gifts for my teenagers. I think I will try to glue gift cards to a stick also. They love McDonalds & gas gift cards. Thanks for sharing!

    This is awesome! I didn’t know that it was so easy to do. I need to invest in a hot glue gun, or steal my friends, because this would be great!!

    I am having a hard time getting the candy to stay attached to the sticks… any suggestions?
