If you want to have fun to get ready for this wonderful holiday, try these cute and tasty Valentines crafts.

Valentines crafts - How to make a chocolate bouquet

For this DIY Chocolate Bouquet you will need:

  • Kit Kat Milk Chocolate Wafer Candy Bars (1.5 oz)
  • Heart picks
  • A small plush teddy bear with a heart
  • A container
  • Red satin fabric, red cellophane, tissue paper for wrapping your container
  • Valentine’s themed ribbon and/or red ribbon
  • Floral foam
  • Wooden skewers or lollipop sticks

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.

Wrap your container - step 2a

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.

Wrap your container - step 2b

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.

Step 4. It’s 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.
