How To Make A Bouquet Completely Out Of Candy


There are lots of different types of candy bouquets you can make. One way is to make a normal bouquet out of flowers, and then add some candy afterwards. (You can learn how to make a candy bouquet like this here)


Another type of candy bouquet you can make is one that is made entirely with candy... without using any flowers. This is the type of candy bouquet I will show you how to make in this article.

Step 1: Wiring and Taping...


The first step is to wire and tape all the chocolates, lollipops, toffees and leaves.

Because the lollipops are on a stronger wire this will help the candy bouquet hold it's shape.


Step 3: Prepare Figure-of-Eight bows...


Next make 9 figure of eight bows out of ribbon.


These will be arranged around the outside of the candy bouquet to help frame it.


Step 4: Add leaves to the candy bouquet...


At this point you can add your leaves throughout the candy bouquet. This puts something between the pieces of candy, and helps to soften the bouquet.


You can also make up some ribbon loops, and place them in between the candy as well.


Step 5: Add the Figure-of-Eight bows...


Place a small piece of stem tape up near the top of the candy bouquet to hold everything together.


Then add your figure of eight bows around the outside. This will help to frame the bouquet...

Step 6: Finishing Touches...


If you wish you can add some trailer ribbons to the candy bouquet.


Finally, trim your wires and do your final taping of the handle.


To finish off the candy bouquet, try placing it into a glass vase like this...
