Need an easy and inexpensive gift? Make a candy bar bouquet! Using craft supplies from the dollar store, this fun craft is perfect for Mother's Day; Father's Day and Teacher Appreciation!

Our local grocery store has a beautiful floral department. I love poking around looking at the different flowers. They also always have these adorable candy bar bouquets. I love how cute they are but the price tag is something around $20 or more. Ouch! For teacher appreciation week last year I decided to try and make my own candy bar bouquets. They looked easy enough to make!

Candy Bar Bouquet Supplies

You will need:

A vase – I picked up some colorful tin buckets at the dollar store, but get creative. I would say the container needs to be at least 8 inches or so tall.

A square or round of floral foam – I also got this at the dollar store

12″ Bamboo skewers

Packing tape

Candy Bars – I used a mix of full size and mini bars

Tissue Paper

DIY Candy Bouquet

Begin by cutting the foam to fit your container. I found it easiest to use a serrated bread knife to saw the pieces off. This is messy so I cut them outside.  I had square pieces so I just nicked the edges off. The foam did not go all the way to the bottom of the buckets. I just tucked it in.  My bouquets were top heavy so a layer of something with weight on the bottom of the bucket is probably not a bad idea.

Once the foam fits, take it back out and wrap it in tissue paper. Stick it back in the container.

Candy Bar Gift Bouquet

Use the packing tape to secure the blunt edges of the bamboo skewers to the backs of the candy bars. My candy bar bouquets were a little top heavy and tended to tip over.  So make sure the candy bar is securely fastened.  I left the skewers on the regular size candy bars full length.  I used scissors to cut the skewers shorter for the mini candy bars and put those in front of the large candy.

Easy Candy Bar Bouquet

Stick the pointy end of the bamboo skewers in to the floral foam in the bucket. Because my foam wasn’t on the bottom of the bucket, it had a little give to it. So just be careful when inserting the skewers.  I used two large candy bars and three little ones in each bouquet but feel free to add more.

Presents for Teachers


Because these were for teacher appreciation week, I added this cute little saying to each bouquet. But this year, I’m using these candy bar printable wrappers.  They are the perfect addition to a bouquet for teacher appreciation week!
