Easter Candy Bouquet Instructions

There are many ways to make candy bouquets. For this project I used a clear glass vase, which was super fun because I was able to fill the vase with candy, as well as make the bouquet.

Another awesome idea for a homemade Easter gift bouquet would be a potted candy arrangement like these ones, but with an Easter theme.

Here's What You'll Need:

  • Candy! Easter is a great holiday for this project because there's lots of brightly colored candy to choose from. Pastels or rainbow are both really good options for Easter-themed candy bouquets. Don't forget a chocolate Easter bunny!

Fun Easter candy for your DIY Easter Candy Bouquet...Easter bunny!

  • Something fun... it's optional but super fun to put in a special deck of playing cards, some bubbles, a stuffed animal, sidewalk chalk or something fun like that. For this project I put in a deck of Go Fish.
  • Gather your supplies and make your own Easter candy bouquet!Glass Vase. I love the cylinder shape of the vase shown. It holds the floral foam nicely and has enough room to show off the jelly beans underneath. I find these vases at dollar stores and crafts stores.
  • Floral Foam. I get floral foam cylinders 2 for $1 at dollar and craft stores.
  • Ribbon. For tying around the vase.
  • Easter candy bouquet instructions...Tissue Paper. 3 pieces of square tissue paper that match the candy you choose.
  • Cellophane. 1 piece of cellophane cut to the same size as the tissue paper.
  • Wooden Skewers. 1 wooden skewer for each candy plus an extra for any candy that's heavy such as the chocolate bunny shown.
  • Clear Cellophane Bag and Twist Tie. This is for the candy that goes inside the vase.
  • Clear Plastic Packing Tape.
  • Scissors or Jewelry Pliers. Something that can cut the wooden skewers.
  • Non-Serrated Knife. May be needed to cut the floral foam.

Let's get started...

Make your Easter candy bouquet extra cute by filling the base with jelly beans!Step 1. Candy Inside the Vase. Put the cellophane bag inside the vase. Pour the jelly beans (or other candy) inside, taking care to leave plenty of room for the floral foam that will go above the candy. Make sure they are nicely packed in. Twist the top of the back and secure with a twist tie.

Tips... If you buy loose candy, I recommend the cellophane bag technique. It will keep the candy fresh and clean. If you choose individually wrapped small candies such as tiny chocolate eggs, you can skip this bag and poor them directly into the container.

Step 2. Wrap Floral Foam in Tissue Paper. If needed, you can cut some of the height from the floral foam. Then wrap the floral foam in a strip of tissue paper to keep your candy bouquet nice and clean.

Step 3. Prepare the Tissue Paper Backdrop. Take your 2 pieces of tissue paper and the 1 piece of cellophane (all square, all same size) and turn them in a diamond position. Fold the bottom point up and the side points in. Adjust as needed. Roll this around the floral foam and put it all inside the vase.

Tip... While this step is optional, I find it creates a wonderful base and back drop for your candy bouquet.

Step 4. Put Candy on Sticks. First, measure how high you want each piece of candy and trim the wooden skewers as needed. Always trim from the blunt side, as you will need the pointed side to puncture the floral foam.

Use a large piece of clear packing tape to adhere each piece of candy to a wooden skewer. For heavier items like the deck of cards and the chocolate Easter bunny shown, you can use two skewers.

For this Easter crafts, you will tape a wooden skewer to each piece of festive Easter candy.Use two skewers for heavier items.

Step 6. Ribbon and Bow. Wrap your ribbon around the vase and make a bow if desired. Or take your creative leave and decorate your Easter candy bouquet however you like!

You can tie on an Easter gift tag like this "Somebunny Loves You" printable gift tag or make your own.

That's it!
