St Patrick's day candy bouquet

To make this St Patrick’s Day craft, you will need: a flower pot or any other container, chocolate coins, other candy pieces you choose to use for your bouquet, floral foam, floral tape, bamboo skewers, gold cellophane or tissue paper, green or themed ribbon, a green or themed bow, and tools (scissors, wire cutters and a low temperature glue gun).

Step 1. Choose a container for your candy arrangement. It can be a simple flower pot, a glass, even a paper box, it is all up to you. Put a piece of floral foam into the container so it fits snugly.

Cut a piece of gold metalized cellophane or tissue paper. Place your container in the center of the cellophane or paper square.

Step 2. Wrap your container with the metalized cellophane or tissue paper. You can attach several pieces of double-sided tape along the top rim of the container so the cellophane or paper will not move around. Or you can put a rubber band around the cellophane to hold it in place.

Tie a piece of green or themed ribbon around the container.

Step 3. Make candy flowers for your candy bouquet. European sweets were used for this arrangement.

a) Prepare chocolate coins and bamboo skewers. Using a dab of hot glue (use a low-temperature glue gun) attach a chocolate coin to a stick. Attach 2-3 coins to each stick. In the picture you can see how a ‘chocolate coin flower’ looks from the front and from the back.

Party stores, Walgreen’s and most grocery stores carry chocolate coins in March.

b) To make ‘money candy flowers’ take Hershey’s miniatures or Ghirardelli chocolate squares. Print out some $5, $10, or $50 money bills. You can find the bills on the internet (in Google pictures, for example). Then you need to change the size of the bills to fit your candy pieces (use Microsoft Office picture manager or any other similar program). Wrap the bills around your candy pieces securing them with a piece of scotch tape. Then using a little bit of hot glue, attach 2-3 money candy pieces to each stick.

c) Make the third type of candy flowers for your centerpiece. Use sweets specifically wrapped in green wrappers. Attach 2-3 pieces to each stick with green floral tape. If you don’t remember how to do this, go to this page.

Step 4. Arrange chocolate flowers in the container the way you desire.

Insert a green bow with a St Patrick’s Day theme in front of the bouquet. You can buy a ready to use bow or make it yourself. With a dab of hot glue, attach a piece of bamboo skewer to the back of the bow and then insert it into your candy centerpiece.

Do not forget to insert some candy flowers in the back of the candy bouquet so when you look at your centerpiece it looks good from all sides.

Step 5. If you make this candy bouquet as a gift, you can add a personalized greeting card.
