To make this DIY Snickers candy bouquet, you will need: standard size Snickers bars, fun size Snickers bars, an empty canned food tin to use as a container, floral foam, wooden skewers, a low-temp glue gun with a glue stick, red curling ribbon, a red bow, scissors and wire cutters.
Prepare an empty canned food tin (for example, an empty soup can) and a block of floral foam.
Note: Instead of green floral foam, you can use Styrofoam or a piece of a pool noodle.
Cut the foam to the proper size so that it fits snugly in the can.
Prepare standard size Snickers bars. Using a low-temperature glue gun, begin securing candy bars to the can until it is completely covered. Glue the chocolate bars close to each other so that there are no gaps between them. Now you have a chocolate vase.
Next, take fun size Snickers candy bars and wooden skewers. Using a low temperature glue gun, secure the wooden skewers to the backs of the chocolate bars.
Tie a piece of red curling ribbon (you can use narrow satin ribbon instead) around each skewer. Curl it with a pair of scissors. Now you have candy flowers.
Arrange your candy flowers in the bouquet the way you want.
Insert chocolate bars in the center of the arrangement in a fan shape. I use an odd number of candy bars (3, 5 or 7) because they look better this way. The center row of candy flowers is the tallest.
Arrange Snickers bars into the second row. It should be lower than the center row.
Insert chocolate bars into the third row, the lowest one.
(Optional). At this point, when you look at your bouquet, you can see the wooden skewers. To disguise them, you can insert some red cello or tissue paper pieces around the rim of the can.
Cut red cellophane or tissue paper into 5.5" x 5.5" squares. Take a cello piece, pinch it in the middle and with your other hand loosely pull it up into a cone shape. Attach the cello piece to a wooden floral pick.
Insert the picks with attached cello pieces in to the foam around the rim of the container.
Now, look at your candy bouquet from the back. It doesnt look pretty, does it? You will need to put some candy flowers in in the back of the bouquet so that they face outward from the back of the candy centerpiece.
