It is so easy and all you do is attach your candy to Wilton treat sticks or you can use straws or lollipop sticks. You can even use wooden skewers to make this.
Once you have everything glued together, it all gets tucked into a mason jar.

If you prefer not to use a mason jar, a cup would work just as well. Grab a cup and put the candy inside just as you would the mason jar.

Supplies for DIY Valentine candy bouquet:
- Tissue paper in Valentine colors
- Wilton treat sticks or you can use straws or lollipop sticks
- Heart candy (sweet tarts or candy hearts)
- Individually packaged candy (do a variety of sizes and shapes)
How to make a Candy Bouquet DIY easily:
- First fill your mason jar about a third of the way with your candy hearts. These are going to keep the sticks in place.
- Next add a bead of hot glue down the back of one piece of candy. Push in one treat stick and allow to dry.
- Continue to do this with all of the candy.
- Once the hot glue is dry begin sticking them into the mason jar with candy.
- Begin adding in more of the loose sweet tarts in the mason jar to help keep the sticks in place. Make sure the mason jar is completely filled with candy once you have placed your candy where you want them.
- Once finished, push in some tissue paper in the back to give the arrangement a background.
- Then cut a piece of ribbon and tie it around the mason jar.
- Finally give your new candy gift basket to someone. They will love it.
Note- You can use a small piece of floral block or floral foam in the bottom of the mason jar. This will reduce the amount of candy hearts needed.
