candy bouquet with a Halloween theme can be given as a gift to a child's teacher or used as a fun way to offer candy to children who are trick-or-treating. You can also use the bouquet as a fun centerpiece on a kitchen table or a table in the living room.
First, you need to find the proper basket or container for the bouquet. A
basket that is wrapped with ribbon that features Halloween decorations
is an idea, or you can use a glass vase so that you can easily position
the craft sticks that are attached to the pieces of candy that are used.
After you find the container that you want to use, begin to decorate the
outside of the container with stickers, small pumpkins and other items
that you associate with the holiday. It's easier to decorate the outside
of the container before you add the candy so that the candy doesn't
The fun part begins once the container is completed. Add a block of
Styrofoam to the bottom of the container. You can wrap the foam in
orange of black paper. Gather all of the candy that you want to use in
the bouquet. It could be small candy bars, lollipops or pieces of candy
that look like characters associated with Halloween, such as pumpkins or
witches. These are often small pieces that come in a large bag.
Using a small amount of hot glue, attach a craft stick to the back of
each piece of candy. You can use orange and black sticks if they are
available, or you can paint the sticks to give more of a Halloween look
to the basket. Once all of the sticks are in place, position the candy
so that it looks like a bouquet of flowers. Add a few decorations, such
as ghosts and witches, before placing the smaller pieces of candy around
the bottom of the sticks to cover the foam block. If you are giving the
bouquet as a gift, attach a card or a ribbon to the container.
