My handsome husband and I just celebrated our 4th anniversary. Since our anniversary is so close to Valentines Day (a month apart) we switch every year. He was in charge of Valentines Day and that leaves me our anniversary. I got us tickets to Wicked and made some dinner reservations at one of my favorite little french restaurants called Carafe. They have the best Croque Monsieur there!!! Anyways funds are tight around here so with all of that on the menu for the night, we decided not to get each other presents. Although I had a little surprise planned...this easy to make Candy Bar Bouquet! He showed up with a bouquet of flowers for me, so I was happy I did not come empty handed.
What you need to make this scrumptious gift bouquet:
(1) foam brick or 2x3 foam block
Ribbon or twine
First, I hot glued the boxes of licorice (from Trader Joe's) together. Then I hot glued the foam to the top of the boxes. Now if you would rather use a foam brick that would be your bottom, instead you can get box candy to glue around it (like Hot Tamales, Mike and Ike's or Sugar Babies). You would need 4 boxes.
