If there’s one thing kids love about Valentine’s Day, it’s candy! I try not to give my kids too much sugar on a day-to-day basis, but on holidays like this one, it’s their time to get extra treats.
This year, I decided to make candy bouquets for my kids. This is a fun and easy alternative to a gift box or basket! This would also make a great gift for teachers on Valentine’s Day.
Check out the step-by-step instructions below.
DIY Valentine’s Day Candy Bouquet for Kids and Techers
1. Materials For DIY Valentine’s Day Candy Box
- A sturdy box for the base. Something low will ensure it isn’t too top heavy!
- Floral Foam
- Wooden Dowels
- Large candy bars and treats– bonus points if they’re Valentine’s colors
- Tissue paper
2. How to make Valentine’s Day Candy Box
Tape your candy and treats to the end of the wooden dowels.
Tape or glue your tissue paper around the perimeter of the box on the inside so it fans outward. This will create a nice base.
Place a thick layer of floral foam into the bottom of the box. You’ll use this to stick the dowels in place.
Create your arrangement! Start with the largest items first and begin to fill in the gaps. You can either make it tall in the back and short in the front or uniform all the way around- it’s up to you and your creativity! You can determine the heights of each item by how far you push the dowel into the floral foam.
Fill in any leftover gaps with more tissue paper bunches.
I love this super easy and fun way to give your kids treats on Valentine’s Day! It also makes a perfect gift for teachers and friends!
