DIY Mother’s Day Gifts - Hershey Kiss Flowers

Looking for cute DIY Mothers Day Gifts? This Hershey kiss chocolate flower bouquet is an easy and adorable present for Mom. Kids and grandkids will have fun helping you too.

DIY Mothers Day gifts - chocolate flower bouquet

To make this candy flower bouquet you will need:

  • a basket
  • Hershey’s kisses in gold wrappers
  • cardstock of various colors
  • wooden skewers
  • floral foam or Styrofoam
  • narrow green ribbon
  • green tissue paper
  • gold curling ribbon
  • scissors and wire cutters

Step 1. Prepare a basket for your candy centerpiece. Remember that the bigger the basket, the more candy flowers you need to create a full and attractive centerpiece.

I used 5.5" wide and 11" high (including a handle) basket in this example.

Step 2.Cut a piece of floral foam to fit tightly inside the basket.

You can buy Foam or Styrofoam at a craft store. If you make a lot of candy arrangements you can buy a sheet of insulating foam at a home improvement store to save money. That’s what I used for this Mothers Day gift basket. I cut two discs (one smaller for the bottom of the basket and one bigger for the top) and secured them together with dots of hot glue.

You can wrap the foam with green tissue paper to disguise the foam as shown in the picture. Then insert foam into the basket.

Note: You can also cover the foam with green plastic grass or shredded paper.

Step 3. Take yellow, orange, red cardstock and cut out several flowers. Here is a printable flower template I used to make this present for Mum.

Step 4. Make delicious flowers for your Mother’s Day candy bouquet.

Prepare Hershey kisses in gold wrappers (classic milk chocolate with almonds). Instead of Hershey kisses, you can also use Dove chocolate pieces.

Take a cardstock flower (place it on a piece of foam for convenience) and make a small hole in the center of the flower with scissors first. Then, insert the wooden skewer with a pointy end through the hole.

To prevent the paper flower from sliding down or being loose on the stick, apply a piece of narrow Scotch tape around the stick right under the paper flower to keep it as close to the chocolate kiss as possible. See the picture.

DIY Chocolate bouquet

Make as many chocolate flowers as necessary. 15 flowers were made for this bouquet.

Take green narrow satin ribbon and tie it around each flower stem. They will make the leaves of the candy flowers.

Step 5. Arrange the chocolate flowers to create a beautiful Mothers Day gift basket.

Step 6. As a finishing touch, you may want to add some decorative elements.

For example, add some gold curling ribbon to the centerpiece (I tied the ribbon around the center of the basket handle).
