Welcome to the newest addition to the Crafting Community, Crafty Sundays! (tentative name and image, what do you think? )
Now whether or not you celebrate or recognize Easter, this craft is pretty fun, easy and could even be transposed into a Halloween perspective for later in the year.
This image-based DIY guide to making your own Candy Bouquet is pretty straightforward thanks to @decorkiki, but here's a written out list of what it looks like you'll need, all of which can easily be found at your local craft store, corner store and/or online.
- Foam Core Brick ; Bouquet Inner Base, sizing up to you based on the size of the bouquet
- Long Craft Sticks/Skewers ; Attachments for Candy to Inner Base
- Candy Bars! ; "Flowers," sizing could relative to the Inner Base, up to you.
- Candy Boxes ; Bouquet Outer Base, sizing relative to Inner Base
- Hot Glue Gun
- (optional) Colored Tissue, Webbing and/or other Decorations
The only issue I can see myself running into with this craft is finding a Foam Core Brick that's relative to the size of the Candy Boxes, so you may need to use a knife to cut down the Brick to size; otherwise, fairly straightforward, brilliant and a really fun end result that would make a beautiful (and sweet) centerpiece to a table or a gift to someone special.
