When you are thinking of giving a bouquet to a friend or family member, you may feel uncertain about what type of bouquet to give someone who suffers from allergies. One solution is to make a bouquet of candies instead of flowers, which you can arrange to look like a whimsical bunch of flowers. You can make a candy bouquet using materials purchased from a supermarket or from a sweetshop.
Push a hot glue stick into a hot glue gun, and heat up the gun for 10 minutes.
Squeeze a pea-sized dollop of hot glue onto the flat end of a bamboo skewer, and press a wrapped candy onto the hot glue dollop. Hold the candy in place for 1 minute to allow the hot glue to harden.
Repeat this process until you have 20 to 25 candy-tipped bamboo skewers.
Push a piece of florist foam into the bottom of a decorative vase. If the foam does not fit, cut it to size with a knife.
Insert the pointed ends of the bamboo skewers into the florist foam, which will make the candies stick upright like flowers in a vase.
Cut a piece of ribbon that measures 18 inches long, and tie the ribbon into a bow around the decorative vase.
