DIY Candy Bouquet Gift


Hey friends! Can you believe my oldest son is graduating elementary school?! I can’t (I swear I’m not crying.) My father always gave me a bouquet of roses after a moving up or graduation ceremony so I wanted to keep that tradition, but add a little twist and make a DIY candy bouquet for him using supplies from Dollar Tree!


  • 4 boxes of movie theater size candy
  • Misc. mini candy bars
  • Mini can of Pringles
  • Wooden Skewers
  • Craft foam
  • Mini balloon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Knife 
  • Tissue paper


  1. Hot glue movie theater boxes into square vase shape by gluing the sides together around the Pringles can (add some glue to the sides of the Pringles to keep secure.)
  2. Cut craft foam piece to size big enough to fit inside the vase and cover the Pringles can. Place glue on the bottom and press down to secure.
  3. Hot glue mini candy and chocolate bar pieces to wooden skewers and let dry.
  4. Press mini balloon into center of craft foam/vase and arrange candy skewers around. 
  5. Wrap tissue paper around skewers and tuck in side of boxes to create bouquet effect. 

This DIY candy bouquet gift is great DIY gift for any occasion, grab a birthday balloon to make it a birthday bouquet or you can even opt to leave the balloon out and fill with more candy!
