Since I'm officially a store owner now and Valentine's Day is only weeks away, I decided I needed to get busy making Candy Bouquets today. Since I was crafting away, I thought I would share my fun with you and maybe inspire you to make a fun treat for your loved ones today.
I started by finding a bunch of glassware and baskets at my local Goodwill. It's always my first stop for bouquet holders since there is such a diversity and uniqueness in the styles you find there. The price is super good too!
Then, I stopped by Walmart and bought some of the big bags of Valentine's candy. You can use regular fun size bars, but I like the colors and designs that come in the Valentine's section. I also picked up some Hershey and Reeses hearts to put into the bouquet.
If you are lucky, you will find some Teddy Bears and fun plush to put inside your bouquet. I didn't have that kind of luck, but did find a few at Goodwill and I plan to go check out Dollar Tree tomorrow.
You can also take a big vase and put a piece of styrofoam down in it. Then take Conversation Hearts or other candy and fill it around the foam. This is such a fun way to add more candy to the bouquet at a good price.
Hopefully, this has inspired you to see how easy it is to make candy bouquets and go make a few.
