A Valentine's Day candy bouquet is a fun way to share sweets with your SWEET heart!Whether your Valentine is family, friend or significant other, this candy gift idea can be made perfect for your someone special.

Use their favorite chocolate bars or any other fun candy that your sweetheart will enjoy.

Kids will especially enjoy candy bouquets with chocolate teddy bears, small stuffed animals and Valentine's Day themed candy.

If you want to make a pink themed candy bouquet, I suggest a combination of pink bubble tape and pink bubble gum packages, pink swirl lollipops and any seasonal pink wrapper candy you can find. If you can't find enough pink for your little sweethearts, try wrapping their favorite candy bars in strips of pink scrapbook paper.

  • A small vase
  • 5 pieces of chocolate

  • Glass beads (optional but I like the added sturdiness)

How to Make Candy Bouquets Step-by-Step...

Fold one corner up and each of the side corners in (as shown to the right. You can fine tune how far you fold the corners after you get your candy ready.

Step 2. Attach Candy to Sticks.

Attach the candy bars to sticks and use them to make your Valentine's Day candy bouquet arrangement! Hold each candy bar up to the vase and decide how much (if any) of the stick needs to be cut off to leave the candy at a good height.

Make any necessary cuts from the blunt end since you may need the pointy end to puncture tissue paper.

Using clear packing tape, tape a stick to the back of each candy bar as shown below.
