Valentines craft ideas: DIY chocolate bouquet
If you want to have fun to get ready for this wonderful holiday, try these cute and tasty Valentines crafts. In this tutorial, I will show you how to make an adorable chocolate bouquet for your loved one. This Valentines Day craft is easy and super fun. It makes a wonderful gift for anyone who loves candy.
For this DIY Chocolate Bouquet you will need:
Step 1. Choose a container for your bouquet. I had an empty can in my pantry that I used for this centerpiece (4 inches in diameter and 4.5 inches tall). You can reuse an empty and clean can or jar (for example, a pickle jar) from your pantry or buy small glass jars at a dollar store.
Step 2. Wrap your container in red or themed satin fabric, cellophane, or tissue paper.
As I used a can with pictures on it, I wrapped it with white paper first.
Take red satin fabric, tissue paper, or cellophane and cut a piece of an appropriate size (its size depends on the size of the container you use). Place the container in the center of the fabric piece.
Fold the fabric up around the container. Use a rubber band to hold the fabric in place. Later you will tie a piece of ribbon over this rubber band.
Fold the extra fabric that extends above the top of the container inside the container. Secure it to the inside of the container with pieces of packing tape.
Valentines craft ideas - Step 3. Tie a piece of themed ribbon around the container. Now you can remove the rubber band.
Step 4. Its time to put floral foam into the container. It should fit tightly inside.
You can use Styrofoam or green floral foam. If you make a lot of candy bouquets, it makes sense to buy sheets of insulating foam at a home improvement store to save money.
If you use insulating foam from a home improvement store, trace the can on the foam and cut 2 or 3 discs. Secure them on top of each other with a piece of skewer or toothpicks.
You can also wrap the top of the foam stack with red tissue paper to disguise the foam. A rubber band will help hold the tissue paper in place.
Valentines craft - Step 5. Make Kit Kat candy flowers.
I used Kit Kat Crisp Wafers 1.5 oz candy bars. Attach two skewers to the back of each candy bar with clear packing tape.
Tie bows around sticks at the base of each Kit Kat flower. I used red satin ribbon in this example. With the bows, the centerpiece looks more beautiful.
Step 6. Buy or make heart picks for your chocolate bouquet.
Note: If you need to extend the picks or candy flower sticks (for the tallest row in the centerpiece), attach an additional piece of skewer to the lower part of the stick with floral tape or packing tape.
Valentines Day craft ideas - Step 7. Arrange chocolate flowers and heart picks in the container. What are you waiting for? :) Start making your beautiful chocolate bouquet!
Step 8. Dont forget to insert the Kit Kit flowers and heart flowers in the back of your centerpiece so it looks good all around, not just from the front.
You can also add a heart balloon or a handmade card to your chocolate bouquet.
