Flower Pot Bouquet

Flower Pot Bouquet

Small flower pot
6" lengths of 12 gauge floral wire
Silk flower leaves
Green floral tape
Clear cellophane
1 yard of ribbon or pre-made bow
Jelly beans
Assortment of
pastel foil wrapped candy such as Hershey's Kisses, Rolo caramels, Reese's peanut butter cup miniatures, and peppermint patties

Kisses chocolates roses
For each candy rose, spread glue on the bottom of one foil-wrapped chocolate. Firmly press the bottom of another chocolate to it. Insert florist wire into one pointed end of the double chocolates, twisting cellophane, continuing down the full length of wire with tape. Add 1 or 2 artificial leaves, if desired, securing leaves in place with florist tape.

Rolo caramel blue bells
Insert one length of floral wire through the center of 3-4 blue foil chocolate to form blossoms. Wrap remaining lengths of wire with green
floral tape, inserting silk leaves at the base of the chocolate.
All other candy blossoms
Insert one length of floral wire partially through the center of a peppermint pattie or a Reese's peanut butter cup miniature. Wrap candy with a 4" square of clear cellophane, twisting the remainder of clear wrap around the top of the floral wire. Wrap wire beginning at the base of the candy, over the extra clear wrap, inserting silk leaves.

**Completed craft is for decorative purposes only. Candy used in craft should not be eaten.
