Candy bouquets double as both a centrepiece and an eatable treat for your guests. You can make candy bouquets to match your event by selecting the right colours to match your theme. These centrepieces will add interest to your tables, and you can make them for almost any occasion. After you make the centrepieces, you can wrap them in cellophane and give the centrepieces away as gifts or prizes to your guests.

Instructions

    Lollipop Bouquet

  1. 1

    Trace the bottom of a small terra cotta flowerpot onto the styrofoam with a marker. Cut out the styrofoam circle and place it inside the flowerpot.

  2. 2

    Insert the stick end of the lollipops into the styrofoam. Insert as many as you wish, but use enough to make the flowerpot look full like a bouquet of flowers. Choose a single colour of lollipops to match the theme of the event.

  3. 3

    Add silk flowers to fill the gaps of the lollipops. Cut the flowers at the stem and make them the same height as the lollipops. Stick them into the styrofoam.

  4. 4

    Wrap a ribbon around the flowerpot. Tie it into a large bow.

    Candy Bar Bouquet

  1. 1

    Cover candy bars with colourful plastic wrap or a gift wrapping paper. You can purchase gift wrap at a craft store in a variety of colours. Tape the plastic wrap in place on the candy bars.

  2. 2

    Cut out a piece of styrofoam to fit into a small glass vase. Trace the bottom of the vase and make it slightly smaller for best results. Cut out the styrofoam, and place it in the vase.

  3. 3

    Wrap wooden kebab skewers in floral tape. Tape the skewers to the back of the candy bars. Insert the wooden skewers into the styrofoam at different heights.

  4. 4

    Add moss or shredded confetti inside the vase to hide the styrofoam.

  5. 5

    Wrap curly ribbon around the outside of the vase.
