Man Bouquet — Perfect for Father’s Day!

Just in time for Father’s Day and the end of the school year, I’m sharing how to make this tasty DIY Candy Bouquet.  It’s a gift idea that’s perfect for dads, teachers, and anyone with a sweet tooth!  Originally a “Man Bouquet” Valentine gift for my hubby, I hope this project is perfect for someone on your gift list!

Want to know how to make it?  Of course you do!  Don’t worry.  This project’s an easy one.  (The best kind!)

DIY Man Bouquet {Candy Bouquet}

Materials:

  • Class jar or vase
  • Wooden skewers
  • Ribbon
  • Card stock (any flower color — yellow, pink, red, white, etc.)
  • Glue dots or strong tape
  • Rubber bands (I actually used the girls’ hair tiny hair elastics)
  • Favorite treats!  (Tall, skinny stuff and a few round treats.)  I used beef sticks, cookie snack packs (Oreos, Nutter Butters, and Chips A-Hoy), Charelston Chew Candy Bars, Valentine heart snack cakes, and Little Debbie oatmeal cream pies.  I also used tiny treats to fill the bottom of the jar.

Here’s a view from the back:

Here’s what you do:

  1. Using rubber bands or hair ties, attach the skinny packs of cookies to the skewers (pointed side up).
  2. Cut large flower shapes out of the card stock — making sure they are larger than your round treats.  Attach the treats to the flowers with glue dots or a strong glue.
  3. Fill the bottom of the jar with tiny treats, and then carefully slide in the beef sticks, Charelston Chew bars, and skewer-topped treats.
  4. Tie a ribbon around the top of the jar.

Viola!  You’re done.  If you are giving the gift to your hubby, now comes the hardest part.  After delivering the gift, restrain yourself from sneaking treats while he’s at work or school!  You can do it.  (I can’t, but I’m sure you probably can!)  Hee, hee.

  1. This is totally great! I showed this one to my seven year old daughter since his father would be coming next month and she told me that she’s going to follow these steps.

  2. What a terrific idea – I used to always be stumped as to what to get my darling husband when he was still with me! Am about to become a grandma though, so when that happens, I’ll know what to give my son-in-law! Thanks!
