I am always looking for new ways to celebrate birthdays in YW and try to do something new each year. In an effort to be creative, I decided to try to make a candy bouquet. These look like such fun! I think I really overdid the two I have pictured and will go smaller for the next ones. These are quite large (1 ft. x 8 in.) I would like to use milkshake glasses and think they are the perfect size. I see them everywhere except when I want to buy one! This was my first effort at this idea. They were so easy and I am a little excited about how they turned out. Both bouquets took about an hour to put together in total. I purchased just about everything at the Dollar Store, even most of the candy! Almost everything else I had at home such as curling ribbon, craft sticks, and skewers. I noticed for the first time that I could choose a "color scheme" of candy wrappers. Who knew?
