How to make a Chocolate Bouquet

Materials Needed

  • jar, mug, small container or bucket, vase, or various other small container to hold your arrangement
  • floral craft polyurethane foam
  • floral tape
  • wooden skewers (thicker plus shorter are better)
  • clear cellophane (printed designs to the cellophane give a nice result)
  • colored and/or foil cellophane
  • packaged candy of preference (25 or more  pieces based on how large and full your arrangement is)
  • hot stuff gun & glue sticks
  • scissor

To be able to more fun, a bunch of my friends got together for any candy bouquet-making party.

Look at our table full of materials!!

Directions

1 . Cut your cellophane (colored/foil and clear) into squares regarding 8-10″ in size.   You will make use of one of each the colored as well as the clear for each candy skewer a person make for your bouquet.

2 .   Place your Flower Foam into your base (jar, cup, basket, or other), and securely press it down into place.   If you are using a smaller container, you will want to make use of a knife to cut the foam right into a shape that will snuggly fit.   Make sure that your foam is nice sturdy to give the support your arrangement will need when finished!

3 or more.   Create your foundation.   Use a big piece of foil cellophane to cover the particular foam and finish off the base of the bouquet.   You will want to make the evade as tight and secure as possible, gently pulling down the sides on the foam and using hot glue in order to glue around the top of your mug/jar/basket/etc.   (The hot glue is not going to work well on the craft foam. )   I found it easiest to carry out a small section at a time, placing the glue on the rim of our tin bucket as used in the below, and securing the evade down tightly as I went together.

Once the foil is completely guaranteed into place, trim off the sides.   I chose to leave a ruffle at the bottom, as you see within the photo above.

four.   Begin making your own candy skewers!   Using hot glue, glue the particular blunt end of the skewers within the flap of your wrapped candies.   If using candy in containers, you can simply glue the skewer towards the center, back.   Suckers may also be used, by gluing the skewer towards the stick, or using floral video tape to wrap them together.

Once all of your chocolate is on a stick, you need to gown them up a bit!   This is the way you make your candy arrangement look nice and full, and vibrant!

(1)   Take a sq . of clear cellophane and touch the middle with the pointy end of the candy skewer.   Pull the particular cellophane up to a few inches beneath the candy, and wrap firmly around the stick.

(2)   Use a small strip associated with floral tape to secure the obvious cellophane to the skewer.

(3)   Take a square associated with colored/foil cellophane and pierce the center with the pointy end of your chocolate skewer.   Pull the cellophane up about an inch beneath the clear cellophane, and cover tightly around the stick.

(4)   Use a small remove of floral tape to secure the particular colored/foil cellophane to the skewer.

five.   Arrange your own bouquet!   When you have your candy skewers complete, you can start placing them into your base to produce your bouquet.   Andrea started with a top, center piece , and then added chocolate skewers with similar shapes proportionally as she formed the shape the girl wanted.

Press the skewers heavy, into the foam to make sure they are kept securely in place.   Continue to include skewers to fill in the openings, trying not to eliminate the need to shift them once placed (you will certainly more likely tear up the foil utilized to cover your foam if you do so).

And that is all there is certainly to it!!

Happy Gift-Making!
