Candy Bouquet Tutorial

So in the midst of this INCREDIBLY busy week I made a candy bouquet for a friend at work who turned the big 4 0. I was looking around on Pinterest and I saw something like it but made it more of my own!
So first off you pick a vase that you like (I bought everything, yes everything, from the Dollar Tree to make this bouquet). I filled my vase with gum balls (because turning 40 blows HAHA!)
1
Cover the top of the vase with clear wrap. This will be the base for your Styrofoam. Put a gracious amount of hot glue on top of the clear wrap and place your Styrofoam on top. I added some ribbon because we had a decorating theme going on for her party!
2
Let it set for a few minutes to give the glue time to dry. You are now ready for your candy for the top. In my friend's case I used suckers because turning 40 also sucks!

I used a mixture of blow pops, tootsie roll pops, and dum dums. Just stick the suckers down into the Styrofoam and keep filling until you don't see anymore little holes anywhere.

My friend was very excited and everyone got a kick out of it! It only took me about 30 minutes to make and that was only because I had to stop to fix Landon some juice!
