Teacher Appreciation Week Gift Ideas: DIY Candy Bouquet
Teachers play an important role in kids lives. If you are looking for fresh teacher appreciation week gift ideas, then you will find this article valuable. The candy bouquet below makes a great teachers day gift. It can also be given to a child as a Back to School gift. Please, share your thank you teacher gifts.
Step 1. Prepare candy pieces in autumn colored wrappers (yellow, red, brown, or green). Attach candy pieces to wooden skewers or stem wire with floral tape or Scotch tape.
Step 2. Make candy flowers using crepe paper.
b) If you use thick crepe paper (heavy, premium crepe paper that is 180 grams in thickness before crepe), cut 8 (width) x 3 1/2 (height) pieces, keeping the crepe paper lines parallel to the shorter side. (Thick crepe paper is best as it stretches more easily than thin paper; if using THINNER paper, be sure to use WIDER rectangles).
c) Using hot glue and floral or Scotch tape, secure crepe paper petals around the piece of candy.
d) Make some candy flowers using crepe paper of a different color, such as green.
Cut 8 (width) x 3 1/2 (height) rectangles out of crepe paper. Make incisions, creating petals as shown in the picture (each petal is 0.4 wide). Do not stretch petals.
Wrap a strip of petals around each piece of candy, securing it with hot glue and/or Scotch tape.
e) Wrap wooden skewers with green floral tape.
Step 3. Prepare a basket for your candy bouquet gift. Insert a piece of foam into the basket. You can also insert pieces of green or yellow cellophane/tissue paper/organza around the foam as shown in the picture.
Step 4. Insert candy flowers into the foam.
Step 5. Insert additional pieces of candy into the arrangement.
Step 6. Fill in the gaps in the centerpiece with pieces of cello or organza.
Step 7. Insert some silk maple leaves in the arrangement.
Step 8. Hot glue artificial fruit pieces throughout the candy arrangement. For example, they can be attached to candy flowers.
Step 9. Insert pens, pencils, and a ruler to the candy bouquet. If your bouquet is densely filled, you dont need to push the items into the foam; insert them between candy flowers and they will be firmly held in place.
You may want to put pointy ends of pencils and pens inside the bouquet, not as shown in the picture (just to be on a safe side)
Step 10. As a final touch, you can add a bow, curling ribbon or a greeting card.
