My cute neighbors recently got married. I collected a good amount of donations from all the other neighbors to give the happy couple a gift. What I decided to give them was a candy bar bouquet filled with other good things like gift cards and cash. It was so easy to make and my neighbors loved the gift! This really would make a great wedding gift, teacher gift, birthday gift, or a gift for any other holiday too.
Here is what you need to put this gift together:
- vase or bucket
- kabob sticks
- tissue paper
- foam block
- gift cards
First, take your foam block and put the tissue around it. I tried to make it so that the tissue was taller in the back, shorter in the front.
Then, tape all your goodies onto sticks. I used kabob sticks and some shorter caramel apple sticks. It was nice to have 2 different heights to work with. We also taped some candy as high as we could on the stick and some lower on the stick. This helped give us a variety of height as well.
Arrange all your goodies like a bouquet of flowers. I started with the m&m’s in the middle and then added things behind them and in front of them. I also tried to keep it symmetrical. Finish it off with a ribbon around the vase and a card.
This bouquet contains $140 in gift cards and $80 in cash, plus the treats, but this would be so easy to make bigger or smaller. Bigger – more candy, bigger vase, more gift cards, more money. Smaller – less candy, smaller vase or bucket, less gift cards, less cash. You can adjust this to any size that would work perfect for you and your budget.
