4th of July Crafts and Decorations - DIY Patriotic Candy Bouquet
Celebrate Independence Day with easy and fun fourth of July Crafts and decorations. You can find a lot of Independence Day Decorations on the Internet. However, there are not very many FOOD 4th of july CRAFTS among them. I would like to offer you how-to directions for making a unique sweet table decoration that will make your party unforgettable. Candy Bouquets like one below are easy and fun to make; they can be great fourth of July activities. Chocolate bouquets make amazing 4th of July decorations, centerpieces, and gifts for your friends and family.
Materials used to make this patriotic candy centerpiece: a basket, a themed bow, fun size candy bars (Nestle® BabyRuth®, Crunch®, and Mounds®), a themed narrow ribbon or curling ribbon (red, blue, and white), silk flowers of red, blue, and white colors, floral foam, red shredded paper, bamboo skewers, a glue gun with glue sticks, and tools (scissors and wire cutters).
Step 1. Prepare a small or medium sized basket and floral foam. You can use floral foam bricks or a Styrofoam disc. Cut the foam to the appropriate size so that it sits firmly in your basket. If you use floral foam bricks, you may need to add additional wedges of foam, as shown in the picture. The foam should sit about one inch below the rim of your basket.
Step 2. Cover the foam with red shredded paper.
Step 3. The theme colors for Independence Day are the colors of the American flag. Prepare silk flowers in red, white, and blue colors.
b) Insert the silk carnations into the basket in an oval or round design, spacing them evenly all around. Your arrangement should look good from any side.
If you need to elongate some of the flower stems, attach a piece of bamboo skewer to the stem with green floral tape.
Step 4. Make candy flowers for your Patriotic centerpiece.
b) Glue a skewer to the back of each bar. Hold the skewer down for a few seconds to make sure it is secure.
c) Insert the candy flowers into the basket arranging them within the design. When you finish the front of the arrangement, insert additional chocolate bar flowers in the back of the bouquet. Make sure that they face out from the center of the arrangement. Your beautiful Fourth of July tricolor centerpiece is almost finished.
Step 5. Last step is to add a bow to the bouquet.
Please share your decorating ideas, I'd be happy to post them.
