Candy Bouquet | Supplies Needed:

  • Gift bag or box (feel free to wrap it with seasonal wrapping paper to make it playful, or hot glue candy to it).
  • Dry floral foam block or Styrofoam.

  • Package of wooden skewers.
  • Assortment of candy and chocolate.
  • Wrapping paper, tissue paper, cellophane of color choice.
  • A giant bow.

Supplies needed to make a Candy Bouquet - this is such an easy DIY craft!

First things first you need to stuff the gift bag, box or whatever you are using as a base with a floral block. In this particular gift bag, I needed to use two floral blocks.

How to wrap sticks for your candy bouquet. Making a candy arrangement is an easy DIY that makes an amazing gift for weddings, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, graduation, etc. This technqiue is the basis for this easy craft. The Bewitchin' Kitchen

Wrapping sticks is a technique you need to get down, as you’re going to be doing a lot of it. You will want to keep the floral tape tight as you wrap it (the tape has a little bit of stretch to it). I made a little video to give you another view on doing this in case the photos are not clear enough:

Okay now that you have that part down, go ahead and do a few sticks. For this bouquet I made a total of 17, but it may be different for you as the size of your candy bouquet will change with the size of the base you use.

How to prep your candy and chocolate for a candy bouquet. This makes an awesome gift and is such an easy DIY project for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Graduation or a hostess gift. Check it out at The Bewitchin' Kitchen

So the first step is wrapping your candy/chocolate. I use a similar technique as I did with wrapping the sticks. I know a picture is worth 1000 words, but a video is a lot more helpful in cases like this.

Trust me, it’s really easy once you get the hang of it.

When it comes to making a candy bouquet, an extra piece of tape helps a lot with this DIY gift.

Some items needed a little more support, or can’t be wrapped at all (like Airheads), so I like to secure it with strong tape (packing tape works great here).

In the final stages of creating a candy bouquet, pay attention the details. Remove stickers, price tags and add embellishments that pull this DIY craft together. Get the full tutorial on The Bewitchin' Kitchen

Be sure to remove all price tags, stickers and add some finishing touches. I added two bows to cover up the straps from the gift bag and it worked beautifully.

Looking for a DIY gift that's easy but looks amazing? Try a candy bouquet. Here's a how to on The Bewitchin' Kitchen

Another tip I want to add is to make sure you have an assortment of candy. I had chocolate hearts, those strawberry candies that no one buys (except for me clearly) but everyone loves, Air Heads, a giant heart lollipop, Lindtt chocolates, and a few other fun and cheap candies from Dollarama.

Easy DIY gift alert! This candy bouquet is the perfect gift for any occasion Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation, Birthday gift. Best of all, it's cheap and makes a great dollar store craft. Full how to on The Bewitchin' Kitchen

  24. Well done! Much better than flowers I think πŸ™‚

  25. Whoa that looks like a professional (and expensive) gift basket done for next to nothing. It seriously looks fabulous. A gift basket online store would charge $60+ for something like that!

  27. You can use this idea for baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries. It is so much cheaper to make your own personalized gift basket than buying it. I think your gift basket for Valentine’s Day turned out gorgeous!

  28. A candy bouquet is a great gift idea not just for Valentine’s Day but for any special occasion. Thank you for sharing this post.

  29. I make candy bouquets all the time with tissue paper…which doesn’t transport well. The cello-bags was a great inexpensive idea rather than spending lots of money on the “real deal” cellophane.
    Quick tip…I’m making about 50 bouquets for VDAY, rather than wrap 500 sticks I was able to find them in colors πŸ™‚
