To make the bouquet I used a flower foam, craft sticks, and a hot glue gun. I glued two of each candy onto one stick so there would be no "back" side to them. Then I stuck the sticks into the flower foam. I lined the bottom of the vase with skittles in a rainbow pattern -- or at least attempted to! It didn't turn out quite like I had hoped. Then I put the Starburst on top of that. I had to stick the flower foam all the way into the bottom of the vase for stabilization so I put a small piece of tissue paper underneath it so it wouldn't look so ugly. I think it turned out pretty cute, especially given what I was working with. What do you think?

Our 6th Anniversary
Yesterday Matt and I celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary. We like to follow the traditional anniversary gift ideas for each year and this year happened to be candy/sugar. Anyone who knows Matt knows how perfect that was! So I set out to the store to find six of his favorite candies. I wanted to make a candy bouquet for him. Unfortunately, some of his favorite candies were not the easiest to work with but in the end, I think the bouquet turned out nicely. I just wasn't able to include the Red Vines in it.
