Candy Crafts: Bubble Gum Bouquet
Note: This craft project is only for your personal use. It is copyrighted.
Materials used: a flowerpot, Dubble Bubble Gum, blue cellophane, polka dot cellophane, floral foam, blue plastic grass or blue shredded paper, stem wire (16 or 18 ga), yellow curling ribbon, scotch tape, glue dots, and tools (scissors, serrated knife, and wire cutters).
Step 1. Take a flowerpot. It can be any flowerpot you like. I chose a yellow and blue ceramic flowerpot (5.5 in diameter), because it goes well with the yellow and blue wrappers of the bubble gum pieces.
Step 2. Cut the floral foam to the proper size so it will fit tightly in the flowerpot. Cut a piece of blue cellophane, and then put the piece of floral foam in the middle of this cellophane piece. Gather the cellophane up around the foam and insert it in the pot. The foam should be about 1 lower than the edge of the pot.
Step 3. Cover the foam with blue plastic decorative grass or shredded blue paper.
Step 4. Make several bubble gum flowers.
b) Join 3 bubble gum pieces to each stem using green floral tape. First join a piece of candy to the end of the wire/bamboo skewer. One or two inches down the wire or skewer attach the second piece of candy. Go down another one or two inches and attach the third piece of candy on the opposite end of the second one.
Step 5. Wrap the bubble gum flowers in cellophane.
c) Pull the cellophane into a cone shape it should be just beneath the bubble gum pieces and tie it with a piece of yellow curling ribbon. Fluff the cellophane out.
Step 6. Insert the bubble gum flowers into the pot. The tallest flowers go in the back. Arrange the flowers in a way you find attractive.
Step 7. You may want to add additional pieces of blue cellophane into the arrangement (in the back, in the middle, etc.) to create a fuller bouquet using floral picks.
