Valentine's Day Crafts - Step 1. Find a teddy bear that you would like to use in the candy bouquet. I bought this cute little teddy bear at Wal-Mart for a couple of dollars.

Valentines Day Crafts - Step 2. Let’s make some candy flowers.

a) Prepare chocolate hearts, 16 ga green stem wire, hot glue (low temp glue gun), curling ribbon, and scissors.

b) Take a piece of stem wire and 2 chocolate hearts. Apply glue to the back of one of the hearts (be careful, don’t put too much glue or you can melt your chocolate heart). Before pressing two candy hearts together (back to back), slip in the piece of stem wire between them. Make 2-4 candy flowers in this manner.

c) To give our candy flowers a festive appearance, tie a piece of curling ribbon beneath the chocolate flower. Curl the ribbon by pulling it over the edge of the scissors. Our chocolate flowers are ready!

Valentines Day Crafts - Step 3. Take a silk rose. Decide how tall you want each of your candy flowers to be. With this in mind, put the silk rose and candy flowers together and apply green floral tape or packing tape over the stems. Cut the extra ends of the stems off with wire cutters.

Valentines crafts - Step 5.Now we need to attach our candy bouquet to the back of the teddy bear.

There are different ways to do this.
1) You can secure the bouquet using a dab of hot glue in 2-3 spots.

2) You can also secure the bouquet to the teddy bear’s back and back of its head with several pieces of packing tape. Then tie a narrow red ribbon around the bouquet and the bear (over its neck or neck and shoulders), tying a bow in front.

Note: If the teddy bear tips over, just bend the stems a little bit in the direction opposite to which it tips.

Step 6. (Optional) If you want, you can wrap your gift in clear cellophane, tying it with curling ribbon.

I wish you Happy St. Valentine’s Day!
