End of the year teacher gifts: DIY Candy Bouquet
Need some great ideas for memorable end of year teacher gifts? Teachers work hard during the year. Sure, they deserve our appreciation. Many parents give the teacher a gift card and that’s nice, but you can step up and attach a 'gift card' to one of the chocolate bars in the candy bouquet. With the help of the tutorial on this page you will easily make a beautiful candy centerpiece within 1-2 hours (free printable tags included). What better way to show your gratitude than with a homemade gift from the heart?
To make this DIY candy bouquet gift you will need: a container (a glass or a tin can in this example), fun-size Kit Kat and Twix candy bars, Starlight mints, narrow ribbon, Styrofoam or green floral foam, wooden skewers, scrapbooking or tissue paper, clear packing tape, and tools (scissors, knife, and wire cutters).
If you use a glass or a tin can, wrap it with beautiful scrapbooking paper. You can use tissue paper or cellophane instead. The color of paper should go well with the candy bar wrappers you are going to use in your candy bouquet. For example, I used Kit Kat and Twix candy bars. Thats why I chose red cellophane with gold design.
Here are steps for wrapping the glass in cellophane or scrapbooking paper or tissue paper.
a) Take a glass container and a piece of rectangular scrapbooking paper or cellophane in the color that you chose. I used two pieces of cellophane on top of each other, so you cannot see through them.
b) Using a glue stick, put several spots of glue around the glass. Then wrap the glass in the decorative paper. Use the glue stick to attach the edges of the paper to each other.
c) Fold the paper, extending above the top edge of the glass, inside the glass as shown in the picture. Now you have a container in your desired color.
Your beautiful Teacher Appreciation Candy Bouquet gift is ready!
Looking forward to seeing your version of a Teacher Candy Bouquet gift.
