How To Make A Bouquet Completely Out Of Candy


There are lots of different types of candy bouquets you can make. One way is to make a normal bouquet out of flowers, and then add candy afterwards. Another type of candy bouquet is one made JUST out of candy.

In this article, I will show you how to make a candy bouquet without using any flowers. Although there won't be any flowers, I will still add some leaves and ribbons to add some variety.

You will need:
- 1 box of roses chocolates.
- 7 chuppa chupps.
- 1 packet of wrapped toffee candy.
- 1 bunch of thick gauge wire for the chuppa chupps.
- 1 bunch of thin gauge wire for the chocolates.
- 1 roll of white ribbon
- 9 silk rose leaves

Step 1: Wiring and Taping...

Wire and tape all the chocolates, lollipops, toffees and leaves.

Step 2: Add the lollipops to the bouquet...

Hold the wired and taped chocolates and toffees in one hand.

Place the wired and taped lollipops around the outside of the chocolates.

Because the lollipops are on a stronger wire this will help the candy bouquet hold it's shape.

Step 3: Prepare Figure-of-Eight bows...

Next make up nine figure of eight bows out of ribbon.

These will be arranged around the outside of the candy bouquet to help frame it.

Step 4: Add leaves...

At this point you can add your leaves throughout the bouquet. This puts something between the pieces of candy, and helps to soften the candy bouquet.

You can also make up some ribbon loops, and place them in between the candy as well.

Step 5: Add the Figure-of-Eight bows...

Place a small piece of stem tape up near the top of the candy bouquet to hold everything together.

Then add your figure of eight bows around the outside to frame the bouquet.

Step 6: Finishing Touches...

If you wish you can add some trailer ribbons to the candy bouquet.

Finally, trim your wires and do your final taping of the handle.

There you have it!

A bouquet completely made out of candy.

What a yummy idea.

This bouquet would make a lovely gift and children will love it, particularly because they can eat it!
