Save

Are you looking for a unique gift to make for a the sweetest person in your life? Why not create a custom sucker bouquet out of the person's favorite sucker flavor. You can be creative and use the same flavor or mix and match for a variety of flavors that can be enjoyed for several days. You can place the suckers in a mug or small bowl for a unique gift that keeps on giving.

Things You'll Need

  • Large coffee mug or small bowl
  • 25 to 30 suckers in flavor of your choice
  • Green floral foam
  • Hot glue gun and glue stick
  • Measuring tape
  • Utility knife
  • Floral pins
  • 10 sheets of tissue paper in assorted colors
  • Use your measuring tape to measure your coffee mug or bowl to size.

  • Cut the floral craft foam to size with a utility knife to fit into the container.

  • Apply hot glue throughly to the bottom of the floral craft foam.

  • Wedge the foam into the container to create a tight fit.

  • Take your suckers and stick each one about a quarter of the way in, stick side down firmly into the foam to form a round bouquet.

  • Take your tissue paper and cut each piece in to thirds.

  • Take one piece of tissue paper at a time and fold to make a V.

  • Take your floral picks and insert into the middle of the V.

  • Take the pointed end of the floral pick and insert in between the empty spaces in between the sucker bouquet to provide a filler and a splash of color.

Tips & Warnings

  • This gift does not have to be wrapped and can be given as is.
