Homemade Valentine Gifts:
St. Valentine’s Day Peeps Hearts Candy Bouquet

If you are looking for unique homemade Valentine gifts, then a candy bouquet is definitely one of those gifts. Based upon my personal experience candy bouquets always get a recipient’s attention. Your sweetheart will be pleasantly surprised if you make her/him a Valentines candy bouquet using her/his favorite candy.

Note: This Valentine's candy craft project is only for your personal use. It is copyrighted.

Homemade Valentine Gifts - Step 4. Prepare 4-6 bamboo skewers. Using wire cutters cut the ends off three or four of the skewers and extend the last skewer by attaching a piece of skewer to its blunt end with green floral tape (pull on floral tape to make it tacky). All skewers should be of different heights. Wrap each skewer with green floral tape leaving the sharp end uncovered.

Homemade valentine’s day gifts - Step 5. Insert the uncovered sharp end of a skewer into each of the separated Peeps Hearts. Cut a piece of narrow red ribbon (it can be a themed Valentine’s ribbon) and tie a small bow at the base of each marshmallow heart.

Step 6. Arrange the candy hearts in the vase, putting the short “candy flowers” in the front and the taller ones in the back.

Step 7. Take Brach’s Jube Jel Cherry Hearts, bamboo skewers and toothpicks. Thread one or two hearts on to a bamboo skewer. These hearts are not very big; they may want to split in half when you string them on to a skewer. To prevent this I inserted the hearts on to a toothpick (a toothpick is thinner than a skewer) and then attached the toothpick to the blunt end of a bamboo skewer using green floral tape.

Continue wrapping the rest of the skewer with floral tape until it is all taped. Make as many Brach’s heart candy flowers as you want for your bouquet. To make them of different heights, cut off the ends of the skewers using wire cutters. You can also tie a piece of red curling ribbon to some of the Brach’s heart flowers.

Step 8. Arrange Brach’s heart flowers in the vase as you like.

Note: Instead of Brach’s Jube Jel Cherry Hearts, you can use gumdrops.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your loved ones!
