Mother's Day DIY Candy Bouquet

Mother’s Day is almost here! 

By: Melody Crist

 

It’s time to thank Mom for all that she does...and what says “thank you” better than candy!? 


We know that Mother’s Day may be a difficult time for some—but this candy bouquet is the perfect way to show your appreciation for any important person in your life, whether that be a mom, an aunt, or a friend who has always been there for you.


 It’s a sweet twist on the classic springtime gift. And it’s so easy to make! 


Here’s what you’ll need: 


  • A jar (you can use a mason jar, or simply repurpose one from your recycling bin!)
  • Enough small candy to fill the jar—you could use gummies, chocolate covered pretzels, or anything your giftee loves!
  • Large candy, such as chocolate bars or other packaged treats 
  • Wooden skewers or straws 
  • Ribbon 
  • Tape or glue 
  • Tissue paper (optional) 

Here’s how to make it: 


  1. Fill your jar with candy. If you don’t want to fill the whole jar, you can place tissue paper at the bottom and add the candy on top. 
  2. Using tape or glue, attach your chocolate bars or other large candy to the skewers/straws. 
  3. Place your treats stick-down into the jar and arrange them like a bouquet of flowers! 
  4. Add the finishing touch—use the ribbon to tie a bow around the jar. 

That’s all you need to do to make a beautiful gift that your loved one will cherish! Until they eat it, of course...
