Easy Candy Bouquet DIY

If you are looking for a fun and thoughtful homemade gift idea, consider creating a custom candy bouquet perfect for many different occasions! Create one for a birthday celebration, graduation gift, teacher gift or to acknowledge or thank just about anyone.  And most of these supplies can easily be found at your local dollar store so this idea is budget-friendly as well.
Candy Bouquet Supplies

tissue paper in various colors/designs
ribbon and mini foil balloons for embellishments

Directions:

Start with 4 boxes of candy and glue the corners together using a hot glue gun. Next, glue the wood skewers to the back of each package of candy. For super thick candy bars, use two skewers. Cut floral foam so it’s just a tad bit smaller than the space inside the candy vase. Place foam in the middle of two pieces of tissue paper and press it down into the candy vase so the paper sticks out. Using smaller squares of tissue paper, poke the skewer through the tissue paper, and twist up paper around end of candy so it looks like a flower. Use a piece of tape to secure if desired. Arrange candy by sticking skewers in the foam. Use scissors to cut skewers if needed to arrange at varying heights. Embellish with foil balloon and ribbon.

Notes: My foam fit so tight within the candy vase that I didn’t need to add a bottom to my vase, but you could always hot glue a piece of scrap cardboard if needed. Also, if candy isn’t appropriate or desired, consider other snacks like nuts, dried fruit, trail mix, protein bars, etc!
candy bouquets for all occasions
I was inspired to make these as my local grocery store sells them in their floral department for $20 each as pictured above. As you can see, by simply changing the balloon and paper colors, you can customize this idea for different occasions. For instance, I’m planning on making my son’s coaches a baseball version using Cracker Jacks, sunflower seeds, Gatorade beverage packets, etc. Enjoy! 😀

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
