1. Select the Container
You should apply your creative mind to choose the container according to the person you are gifting to. A coffee cup or parfait cup is good for friends and coworkers, a sand pail for children, a plastic flower pot or clay pot for the gardener, popcorn cover for a movie buff, etc.
2. Get a Good Collection of Candies
Choose the candies that the giftee love along with visually appealing wrappers. Always choose variety wrapped candies with a mix of small candy bars, bubble gum, toffees, etc. There are candy boxes with different colored wraps available in the market for making the bouquet, and you can use few. The colors of the wraps also should be representing the receiver, and bright colors could be the best option for children, gold or silver for anniversaries, white and red for Valentine's Day, green and red for Christmas, etc.
3. Fix Styrofoam at the Bottom of the Container
Fill the bottom of the container with a chunk of properly cut Styrofoam and fix it with a glue gun. Wait for some time to get it completely cemented unless you are planning to fix it on the sides of the container.
4. Fix a Wooden Skewer at the Center of Styrofoam
Use a wooden skewer or a thick popsicle stick in this step and wrap it with a green floral tape. Insert the skewer into the center of the Styrofoam and fix it with a dab of glue. Apply some glue at the other end of the skewer as well to fix a Styrofoam ball in it. The Styrofoam ball should be almost in the size of the container; generally, ball in the size of a tennis ball would work in most cases. To add more effect, use a green Styrofoam ball or use a green wrap to a different colored ball.
5. Attach the Candies to the Styrofoam ball
Use floral pins to fix it over the Styrofoam ball. You can either fix both the ends of candies and one end alone. Pinning candies should be continued until the entire ball area is covered by the candies. After completing the fixing, once again fix the skewer at the bottom of the container.
6. Make it more Colorful Using Bows and Loops
Using colored ¼-inch ribbons, make loops and small bows and fix it along with the candies around Styrofoam ball. You can also think creatively and add whichever you find useful to the Bouquet that makes it more attractive and festive.
7. Fill the Container with Dried Sphagnum Moss or Shredded Paper
Filling the container with colorful shredded paper or dried sphagnum moss would add more appeal to the Bouquet. It will also hide the Styrofoam fixed at the bottom of the container. You would also find setting candy canes into the bottom of the container making it more colorful. At last, you can tie a bright color bow around the container of the Candy Bouquet.
