Have you ever found yourself wondering whether you should opt for flowers or candy in a gift-giving situation?  Well, it turns out you can do both at once!  Inspired by a similar project she saw on Pinterest, Kim from seven thirty three rounded up some supplies from the dollar store and crafted a lovely bouquet of candy bars.  It's a great alternative to a traditional flower bouquet for anyone who has allergies, or for your favorite chocolate lover.  How could anyone resist such a sweet arrangement?  [how to make a candy bar bouquet]

Project estimate:

  • Candy bars, about $0.50 each and up
  • Bamboo skewers, on hand or $1
  • Scrapbook paper, on hand or $1
  • Glue, on hand
  • Flower pot, $1 and up
  • Paint (optional), on hand or $1 and up
  • Styrofoam, $1
  • Paper shreds, on hand or $1
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1 and up

Total:  about $5 and up

    This is a great idea that could be varied with bubble gum or mini chocolate bars. So sweet…literally.

    We did these for Father’s Day and both my husband and father thought we bought them from someone. hehe

    One suggestion that we found helpful was to use the fun-size bars instead of the large ones. Most health-conscious adults would rather indulge in a small treat rather than eat an entire candy bar. And the bouquet lasts longer as they work their way through the candy. : ) We put several pieces of curling ribbon and paper flowers on some of the skewers to fill in the arrangement. We also used small gift bags for the base.

    Great project!

    I saw a similar idea somewhere else but it used hand sanitizers and mini soaps. I love it!
