Easy Valentine’s Day Candy Bouquet

Valentine's Day candy Bouquet

Supplies… Most can be purchased at Dollar Tree:
  • Stuffed Monkey
  • Ballon Weight
  • Bush of roses
  • Bush of glitter hearts
  • Silk rose petals (optional)
  • Clear plastic vase
  • Matching Mylar/foil paper roll
  • Block of styrofoam foam
  • Matching Shred
  • 6 boxes of candy
  • 1 Valentine box of candy
  • Coffee Filters  20-24
  • Skewer sticks -24-28 (Pieces, not all need to be whole.)
  • Packing tape & Scotch tape
  • Stick balloon
  • 2 x 45”-48” of 1” wide ribbon & 4 x  8” strips of the same ribbon.
  • 4” strip of Valentine garland (Optional)
  • Large Bowdabra & Mini Bowdabra (Or just the Large Bowdabra)
  • Bowdabra wire

First, fill your clear vase with the monkey, weight, glitter heart on a stem & optional rose petals. (The weight is very important because this bouquet will be too heavy… You’ll need it for weight & balance.)

Next, wrap the styrofoam on the Mylar paper & wedge it into the top of the vase. Add shreds to cover the foam.

Then, arrange the coffee filter poofs. (There will be 2 filters per poof.)  Add skewer stick to the back of the candy’s and adjust the length L’s of the sticks. Arrange the candy and add the stick balloon in the center of the bouquet.

Finally, add at least 3 roses from the bush, placing 1 in the front/center & 2 on the sides to fill in any spaces.

Make a bow & tie it to the front rose with the Bowdabra wire. Make a 2nd bow (you can use an optional Valentine garland for this bow) & tie it with Bowdabra wire to the neck of the stick balloon. Try to fluff the stick balloon bow & make it go around all sides of the balloon.
