To make this easy St Patricks 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 craft project. 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.
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.
Candy Crafts - Step 3. Make delicious flowers for your Money Bouquet gift. European sweets were used for this arrangement.
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 chocolate pieces (use Microsoft Office picture manager or any other similar program). Wrap the bills around your chocolate pieces securing them with a piece of scotch tape. Then using a little bit of hot glue, attach 2-3 money pieces to each stick.
c) Make the third type of tasty 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.
Money Flower Bouquet - Step 4. Arrange chocolate flowers in the container the way you desire.
Insert a green bow in front of the arrangement. 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 sweets in the back of the chocolate bouquet so when you look at your centerpiece it looks good from all sides.
If you make this as a gift, you can add a personalized greeting card.
