Step 3: Styrofoam in the Base

Use a hobby knife to cut the styrofoam ball down to fit inside the candy bouquet base. A smaller foam ball would have worked better, but this was what I had on hand.

Step 4: Create Candy Flowers

Now make candy "flowers" using pieces of candy and the wooden skewers. Pick a variety of candies that are brightly colored and different sizes. 

Use candy that is your recipients favorite! To make an even grander bouquet, add more styrofoam inside the vase so the "flowers" can poke up even higher!

Use clear tape to attach the candy to the skewers...rather than piercing the candy with the wooden stakes like feral vampires.

Stick the wooden skewer "flowers" into the stryofoam at the base of the candy bouquet vase. Then fill the inside of the vase with a sweet treat like kisses and hugs. Finish it off by taping some kisses around the top of the candy bouquet vase.

Now it just needs a "happy Valentine's day" gift tag for your friend!
