Here’s how to easily create a beautiful Valentines candy bouquet using goodies bought on the cheap to give to someone special.

Let’s get crafty with this sweet DIY Valentine’s Day gift idea.

This beautiful bouquet of candy looks fancy, but it’s honestly easy to create using wood skewers, floral foam, and hot glue. The base is made with four boxes of candy or chocolates. And you can customize it using the recipient’s favorite treats!

Add in some festive touches like tissue paper and a balloon pick to take it next level.

My store had a huge assortment of festive Valentine’s Day candy, decor, and wrapping supplies to make this easy arrangement. I spent less than $20 on this project, and it makes such a thoughtful gift. The result is a cute arrangement anyone would be happy to receive!

1

Start with 4 boxes of candy and glue the corners together using a hot glue gun. These will form the base, or vase, of the candy bouquet.

2

Cut floral foam so it’s just a tad bit smaller than the space inside the candy vase. Place foam in the middle of two pieces of tissue paper and press it down into the candy vase so the paper sticks out.

3

Glue the wood skewers to the back of each of the smaller packages of candy. For larger candy use two skewers.

4

Using smaller squares of tissue paper, poke the skewer through the tissue paper, and twist up paper around end of candy so it looks like a flower.

5

Arrange candy by sticking skewers in the foam. Use scissors to cut skewers if needed to arrange at varying heights. Embellish with foil balloon and ribbon on the sides if desired.


Extra tips for making a DIY candy bouquet:

  •  My foam fit so tight within the candy “vase” that I didn’t need to add a bottom to it, but you could always hot glue a piece of scrap cardboard if needed.
  • You could use clear packing tape instead of hot glue to secure the candy to wood skewers.
  • If candy isn’t appropriate or desired, consider other snacks like nuts, dried fruit, trail mix, protein bars, etc!

This was a blast to put together and I can’t wait to gift this to my husband. His favorite candies are chocolate-covered cherries, and will be excited for this! What a fun and easy project. I highly recommend making one!
