How to Make a Mother’s Day DIY Candy Bouquet

Brownie Blooms and Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

1. Cut a piece of Styrofoam so that it fits snugly into your vase. Place the Styrofoam block at the base of the vase.

2. Fill the vase with crinkled filler paper in the color of your choice. Make sure to completely cover the top and sides of the Styrofoam so that the white color doesn’t peek through.

3. Pierce different-sized lollipop sticks into the Styrofoam in the spots where you’d like your candy flowers to be arranged. Using both small and large lollipop sticks will give your arrangement height and dimension.

4. Stick one green candy-striped straw into the base of each brownie bloom and chocolate-covered strawberry. Then, take the skewered brownies and strawberries and start arranging them in the vase by placing them on top of the lollipop sticks, just like a cover. (The lollipop stick should go into the hole at the bottom of the straw.) This will securely anchor the treats to the Styrofoam and hold them up straight.

6. Tie a ribbon of your choice around the vase to add an extra touch of personality to your sugary bouquet!
