Using a knife cut the foam and place it into the container. The foam should sit firmly and a little bit lower than the rim of the container. If your container is light, for example a plastic one, you will need to add some weight to the bottom of the container, some rocks from your back yard will work.

Step 3:

You may create your Halloween bouquet not just out of candy but candy and silk flowers. For example, you may add black silk roses into your arrangement.

Step 5: Make Candy Flowers for Your Halloween Candy Bouquet.

Picture of Make Candy Flowers for Your Halloween Candy Bouquet.

a) Prepare the candy you want to use in your bouquet (it may be Halloween themed candy or regular candy that goes well with your Halloween container, floral tape or hot glue, and the bamboo skewers or stem wire.

If you use candy that has wrappers with "tails" (loose ends), attach them to the bamboo skewers or stem wire with floral tape.

If you use candy pieces without "tails", attach a skewer to the back of the candy piece using hot glue.

b) Now that we have candy pieces attached to sticks. The next step is to decorate the candy flower stems. Wrap most of the candy flower stems with Halloween garland. Cut a piece of the garland; secure one end of it to the stick right beneath the candy with a little bit of hot glue. Wrap the garland around the stick covering about 2/3 of the stick or more; secure the end of the garland with a dab of hot glue. You can also tie a piece of curling ribbon on top of the garland.

Decorate some candy flowers with just a piece of curling ribbon.

c) Insert candy flowers into the container, arranging them as you wish to achieve the look you desire.

d) Put some candy flowers in the back of the bouquet so that they face the back of the arrangement. This way your bouquet looks good not only from the front but also from the back.

Happy Halloween!
