Valentine Candy Bouquets

I spotted some Valentine candy bouquets at our local grocery store for $26 a pop!  I thought they would be cute for my kiddos this Valentine’s Day so I thought I would give making them at home a whirl.  I had the mason jars, skewers, and ribbon on hand so the candy bars and bagged candy cost me less than $20 for two bouquets.  Here’s how I made them:

Supplies (for one bouquet):

Mason Jar

Wooden Skewers

Hot Glue Gun with Glue Sticks

6 Candy Bars

Approximately 1.5 bags of miniature candy


Use your glue gun to apply a thin strip of glue on the back on the candy bar wrapper.

Then press the dull end of the wooden skewer onto the glue.  And allow to dry.

Then fill your jar about 1/4 of the way full with the miniature candy:

Arrange the candy bars as you see fit.  And then simply fill the jar with the rest of the miniature candy to hold in place.

Wrap a bow around the jar and gift to your loved one!
