Materials needed for this homemade Mother’s Day candy bouquet gift: red cellophane, floral foam, Ferrero Rocher chocolates, a flower pot, bamboo skewers, red ribbon, and red and green tissue paper.

Step 1. Take floral foam and a flower pot of the colour you choose. Then, making sure it fits snugly, insert floral foam that is appropriately sized into the pot.

Step 2. Place the flower pot in the middle of a large square of green tissue paper. Next, pull the tissue paper up to wrap it around the pot, securing it in place by tying a piece of regular or curling red ribbon around the top of the tissue.

Step 5. Cut off the extra cellophane if you need to with scissors. Slip in a bamboo skewer before you twist the cellophane closed, being careful not to poke it right into the actual candy. Then, use green floral tape to tightly wrap the skewer and loose end of the cellophane.
