Easter Bunny Candy Bouquet

Who is ready for an easy peasy gift idea for Easter? Here is our favorite candy bouquet which we use mugs for the base. The mugs were picked up at garage sales and the Dollar Store. We also selected candy that our friends and family love which allowed us to personalize each mug bouquet. This is a super easy and inexpensive Easter project.




Materials Needed:
  • Mug
  • Easter Candy
  • Mug filler- we used a scarf
  • Tape or double sided dots
  • Paper Straw or Craft Stick
  • Ribbon of various sizes and colors
  • Mini Bowdabra/Ruler
  • Bowdabra Bow Wire

Instructions:

1. Gather all of your supplies.
2. Add mug filler and Easter Candy. Tape a straw or craft stick to the back of one of the pieces of candy. We used the large Easter bunny in the center. Stick this into the center of the mug and candy. Use more tape depending on the size of your candy.

3. Make a Bowdabra bow to top off the project. We tied ours to the mug handle.

4. Place the Hair Bow Tool & Ruler onto the Mini Bowdabra.  Cut 12in of Bowdabra Bow Wire fold the wire in half and place it into the Mini Bowdabra.

11. Tie the bow to the bouquet. Add it to the handle, to the center candy or wrap bouquet with clear gift wrap and tie off with the bow. Trim off extra Bowdabra Wire.

I made the project for the Bowdabra Blog as one of their designers.
