Halloween gift idea

Have you ever thought of making a Halloween gift before? I came across this candy bouquet I made my hubby for Valentine’s day. I know, black and orange are strange for a day of love but they’re his favorite colors 😉

When you use this combination of candy, the colors are perfect for Halloween! Would even make a fun centerpiece too!!

Here’s what you’ll need to make this:

  • 1 package of dowels from Hobby Lobby ($2.49 at my store)
  • 8 – 10 candy bars, depends on if you’re using king size or regular
  • clear packing tape
  • glass vase ($3.99 for me at Hobby Lobby)
  • cellophane (I prefer it with a design but you could also buy clear)
  • small candies for weight at the bottom of the vase
I started by using the clear packing tape to attach the candy bars to the dowels.
Then I stuffed one sheet of cellophane down to the bottom of the vase and filled the vase 3/4 of the way full with the small candies.
After that I just stuffed in a little tissue paper, stuffed in the candy on the sticks in and voila! You have a candy bouquet!!

The hubs loved it and so did his work wifeys 😉  It is a thoughtful gift that doesn’t take long at all to make!!!
