Yesterday I mentioned making my daughter’s teacher a candy bar bouquet. I am so excited that she has a teacher that is a candy lover so that I could attempt one! I looked at a few Pinterest pictures and a YouTube video to get a basic idea of what I wanted it to look like and where to start. I had almost everything that I needed at home to make it. What I used:

  • a vase (I already had)
  • left over Christmas tissue paper
  • a piece of a pool noodle
  • wooden skewer sticks
  • tulle (for a bow)
  • packing tape
  • candy bars

I made it by wrapping the pool noodle chunk with tissue paper and placing it inside of my vase, then I taped the skewer sticks to the back of the candy bars. Once I had them all done I arranged them by size and decided how I wanted to arrange them into the vase. I slid them all into place and rearranged until I was happy with the look. And then I finished it off with a bow. I made mine out of tulle. I am not good at making bows, they just look off to me, but I am content with this one!

Candy Bar Bouquets are a great gift for anyone that loves candy! I bought an assortment of candy bars so that the teacher has a good variety. I got most of them on sale for $0.50 a piece, my total investment to make this was about $7.00 because I had a lot of it on hand.
