Candy Bouquet


Candy Bouquet

For a unique Valentine's Day present at little cost, make a Candy Bouquet with these instructions from Terri O. A painted clay pot would make a great base for this bouquet. You can make these bouquets for other occasions too.

Valentine Candy Bouquet


  • Container for bouquet
  • Rocks for the bottom (so it doesn’t tip over)
  • Floral foam or Styrofoam
  • Skewers
  • Floral tape
  • Glue gun
  • Seasonal candy
  • Tulle
  • Ribbon


  1. Glue your candy to the skewer or insert the skewer into your candy.
  2. Cut 4 x 4 squares of the tulle. Use two pieces on top of each other and from the center grab the tulle to make a flower. Using the floral tape secure the tulle to the skewer. Make your skewers different lengths to get different heights. You will need quite a few. These are for filler.
  3.  Place something heavy like clean rocks at the bottom of your container. Place Styrofoam or floral foam over the rocks and secure with glue gun.
  4. Begin in the back center of the Styrofoam with your tallest piece. Create and triangle shape. In other words, as you get near the edge of your pot use shorter skewers. Use as much candy as you like. Fill the rest of the spaces in between with your tulle.
  5. You can use just about anything to fill in the spaces. Try using cellophane or even confetti paper. Get creative with the event and use candy or paper that reflects your theme. Have fun!

In the directions it stated you can select seasonal candy so this project can be made for any time of the year that you want to give a gift. Right now, Valentines is the next holiday and I want to give my sons a special treat. This could be the start of a new tradition.

Now this is my kind of gift. Just about everyone will appreciate a gift of chocolate and all you need to know is the recipients favorite to be sure to include it. Who would not love a bouquet of candy?

Oh no it's Valentine's Day and you forgot. What are you going to do? Calm down I am sure you have a vase laying around if not dollar store here I came. Grab some floral foam some rocks a vase and some candy,skewers and glue. Now make you a pretty arrangement and add your imagination and you have something special for that lucky person. Want to get more creative use Fruit and make your own edibles. Aren't you sweet and smart. So easy. You can do this.

Very cute idea. I just did one for my Christmas center piece. I used Christmas colors and Christmas candy. I even made crochet ribbon candy. I got the pattern for favecrafts sister site, allfreecrochet.between these two sites I never have to purchase instruction booklets again and the money I save goes into buying more supplie.

This is a super cute and simple idea for a Valentine's Day gift. Every aspect was explained in detail and the video was extra helpful to get a few more tips on how to glue without ruining the candy and how to assemble and cover any mistakes that might have been made. I love that this is a flexible project that gives you freedom in what is included and is also versatile and can be used for other occasions.

Made one similar a few years back taught my woman's club how to do it. Painted clay pots with hearts, added dried beans to bottom (cover hole with cardboard. Top with 1/2 of foam ball (glued in place). Made roses with kisses (red, pink silver) wrapped in red cllophane put skewer into bottom of kiss glued into ball. Added heart shaped lollipops, chocolate hearts pieces of clear green cellophane squares that you pinch in center crunch up glued to shorter skewers. Fanastic. We all made them for our kids or grandkids.

I volunteer at a nursing center for seniors. This is so doable for them. Will spray paint sterofoam cups instead of clay pots. Any one have any other ideas for them?

Spray paint will melt your sterofoam cups!!!! You can use dollar store plastic cups or containers.

AND styrofoam is SO un-earth friendly besides...cardboard coffee cups would be much more small footprint and about the same size, PLUS then you COULD spraypaint them if you needed to...

Easy to make for anyone male or female. This would be great for teens.

Easy to make, and fun for anyone male or female....

Whoa! This candy bouquet idea is GREAT! So do-able and attractive. A very cheerful Valentine's gift to give to anyone and how cheerful it looks in the dark, dreary days of February. I will probably make a few of these, but probably use a smaller circumferance flower pot. Thanks!

pretty and yummy at the same time

I made this for my 10 year old granddaughter for Valentines day. She loved it so much that she didn't want to eat the candy out of it. (But she did)

What a beautiful gift! So simple and fun to make!

This is an awesome project and so easy.


Very beautiful. I just did some rosebuds and stuck them in an arrangement I made. They look very nice. Love the tulle idea. Will have to try that. Thanks for sharing! gem

what a great idea, use for showers too or as a bazaar gift. i love this
