Materials you will need to make this St Patrick's Day candy bouquet: chocolate coins, green cardstock, Hersheys nuggets, a flower pot, floral foam or Styrofoam, wooden skewers or lollipop sticks, green tissue paper, green and gold curling ribbon, gold or yellow ribbon.
Step 1. Prepare a container you want to make your candy bouquet in. In this example, it is a flower pot.
As a container you can use an empty tin can, a themed Saint Patricks Day mug or a basket.
If you use a flower pot or a tin can, you will need to wrap it with green tissue paper or cellophane. Cut out a square piece of tissue paper or cellophane big enough to wrap your container. (If the tissue paper is very thin, use two or three pieces of tissue paper.) Place the container in the center of the paper.
Bring the paper up around the sides of the container. Continue to pull the tissue paper upward around the container allowing it to fold and crease as needed around the container.
Fold the paper, extending above the top edge of the container, inside the container (see the picture below).
Step 2. Cut a piece of floral foam or Styrofoam to fit snugly inside the container.
Step 3. If you have gaps between the foam and the sides of the container as in this example, you can insert additional pieces of folded tissue paper in these gaps. See the pictures below.
Step 4. I made a shamrock stencil. Download and print this shamrock stencil. Cut 5 or more shamrocks out of green cardstock.

Candy crafts - Step 9. Prepare Hersheys nuggets. Using clear packing tape (or a little bit of hot glue and packing tape for better security), attach the nuggets to wooden skewers. There should be two or three nuggets on each skewer.
You can tie a piece of gold curling ribbon around each stick.
St Patrick Day crafts - Step 10. Insert Hersheys nugget flowers in between shamrock flowers.
Do not forget to put some shamrock flowers and nugget flowers in the back of the bouquet. Your centerpiece should look good not only from the front, but also from the back.
