Gather The Supplies You Need
There are many styles and designs of candy bouquet that you could see just by doing a little research online. For each design or style, there are specific materials you will need. Yet, the most common supplies are small containers like vase, bucket, small basket, mug or jar that will serve as base or support for the bunch. You will also need a floral or craft foam or a Styrofoam ball or anything on which you could insert the sticks holding the chocolates/candies. You will need sticks or wooden skewers; preferably shorter ones. To attack things together, you will need an adhesive tape, glue or glue gun/sticks. Likewise, you also need to gather decorative materials like cellophane or pretty gift wrap or colorful ribbons to make the base more interesting. Scissors or cutters may be needed too. Finally, you need your chocolates and candies. Although people are not necessarily materials or supplies, you might wish to call your friends or family members to give you help and company while creating this craft.
Decide On The Message Or Thought You Want To Put Into The Bouquet

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint
Before anything else, it is important to consider why you are making it in the first place. This reason will help you in coming up with the appropriate message that can be relayed by this bunch of gift. The message may come through the kinds of types of sweets you use. If you are giving this bouquet to someone you are romantically interested in, you would not use junk or cheap candies. You would choose more expensive, more special sweets to impress him/her.
Decide On A Theme
The theme you will choose will be the basis of what decorations you will put into the sweet posy. A theme could be based on a particular color like pink, blue, yellow, etc. It could also be a theme on a particular kind or brand of candies. Your theme might also be based on the occasion for which the bouquet will serve. For example, it is supposed to be a Christmas gift, then the colors of the posy would be red and green; the decorations would also be Christmas-related like Santa Claus, candy canes or snowflakes.
Consider Who Will Receive It
Knowing the recipient of the sweet treats will also help you in determining how you could decorate them. You may customize the bouquet according to the taste or preference of the person who will receive it. Find out what candies he/she likes. Find out as well if the recipient has medical issues so you can pick the candies to use on the posy. He/she might be diabetic or allergic to nuts.
Work With A Budget
It happens most of the time; you get carried away by the excitement of making a candy bouquet that you simply splurge away your money unnecessarily. There are instances when the only supplies you will need to spend money on are the chocolates or candies. This is because other structural and decorative elements of the project may already be obtained right inside your home. Allow your imagination to work and you will come up with creative ideas on using scarp materials at home to decorate your candy bunch. This way, you could save some money or use the amount to buy additional sweet treats.
