To make this Valentines gift, you will need: a red decorative bucket, floral foam, red shredded paper, Valentine’s candy pieces (I bought some of them in Wal-Mart and others in Walgreens), a small heart-shaped box of candy, lollipop sticks, Popsicle sticks, a low temperature glue gun with glue sticks, a Valentine’s balloon, curling ribbon, and tools (scissors and wire cutters).

Homemade Valentines Day Gifts - Step 1. Prepare a St. Valentine’s themed container and floral foam. I used a red decorative bucket that you can buy in Wal-Mart for $1 or $2.

Homemade Gifts for Valentine's Day - Step 2. Using your container as a guide cut the floral foam to the proper size so it fits snugly into the container. The foam should sit a little bit lower than the rim of the container.

Homemade Valentine Gifts for him or her - Step 4. Let's prepare the candy pieces for insertion into the foam.

a) Prepare the Valentine’s Day candy and one small heart-shaped box of candy and lollipop sticks and/or Popsicle sticks. You can buy lollipop sticks and Popsicle sticks at your local craft store.

b) Using hot glue (use a low temperature glue gun), attach a lollipop stick or Popsicle stick to the back of each piece of candy. Hold it for a few seconds until the glue cools and the candy piece is secured to the stick. You can apply a piece of scotch tape over it.

To secure the heart-shaped box of candy well use a Popsicle stick rather than a lollipop stick. If you need to extend the length of the stick, glue another Popsicle stick to the first Popsicle stick overlapping them by approximately an inch.
