How to make a candy bouquet - Step 3. Prepare Styrofoam for silk arranging. It may be a mugplug or a foam ball of the appropriate diameter. Cut the floral foam to the proper size so it will act as a stopper for the vase.

How to make a candy bouquet - Step 4.

a) Cut 2 square pieces of green cellophane. Put the smaller piece on top of the larger piece, and then put the piece of Styrofoam in the middle of these cellophane pieces. Using two cellophane pieces gives a fuller appearance than using one piece.

How to make a candy bouquet - Step 6. Make chocolate roses. For this arrangement, I made 12 chocolate roses.

b) Cut rectangular pieces of red cellophane wrap. I used 5” x 7” cellophane squares.

c) Attach Lindt truffles to the stem wire using green floral tape.

  • Take the stem wire and floral tape. Cut a piece of tape and pull on it to make it tacky. Wrap the tape around the top of the stem wire (just one or two rotations).
  • Take a chocolate and twist the loose part of the candy wrapper tight and place the twisted end of the wrapper alongside the wire.
  • Then put the stem wrap tape around them. Tightly build up the tape at the base of the candy (wrap the tape about 4-5 times) to secure it well.

Note: This is just one method for attaching candy to sticks. There are different types of candies and respectively there are different methods for attaching them to sticks. In my book "How to Make Candy Bouquets for Fun and Profit" I show different techniques on how to attach candies to sticks.

d) Wrap the wired chocolate with a prepared piece of red cellophane creating a cylinder shape (the height of the cylinder is 5”); you can use a little piece of clear scotch tape to secure the cellophane as a cylinder. Make sure that the cellophane cylinder extends down past the chocolate over the stem. Tie a red curling ribbon around the cellophane at the base of the chocolate, leaving a little bit of cellophane beneath it. The chocolate rose is ready! Repeat these steps to make as many roses as you would like.
