Candy Arrangement for Men

After posting my candy bouquet tutorial, I was hired to create a candy arrangement for a  man's birthday gift.   It doesn't seem right to call it a bouquet  (I don't think a man will appreciate receiving a bouquet) so I'm calling it an arrangement.  ;)

This one would be a great Father's day gift (if the receiver LOVES candy.)  It would also make for a great graduation gift or  Fourth of July party piece.

When creating these bouquets (for the lady) or arrangements (for the man), they can be in any container you choose. That's the beauty of making your own.

I found this 'Coleman"  1 gallon jug on sale for about five or six bucks at Walmart and thought "how perfect, with summer just ahead."

Here is the candy arrangement for a man:
Most of the candy came from the Dollar Tree.
I cut out stars with my Cricut and used pop-up stickers to create the three-dimensional ones.
Some of the stars are 3-D, others aren't.  I just hot-glued the wooden dowels to the back of the stars.
 :)
I made a quick little happy birthday tag.
and hung the tag and the lid off the side of the jug with hemp.
There you have it: A candy bouquet gift idea for the candy lover MAN in your life.

If you missed the tutorial post showing you how to make one of these (VIEW it HERE)

How about you? Have you created a candy bouquet?  If so, what have you used for a container?  and if you haven't created one of , do you plan to soon? Do share!! I'd LOVE to hear from you.

  2. It just so happened that my son and I created three candy bouquets on Thursday. Friday was his last day of first grade and that's what we gave his two teachers and the principal. They were a huge hit! Thanks so much for sharing this idea on your blog! I love your blog! Also, my husband even told me how good they looked....which is rare that he notices things like that. So then when I just saw this post about a man "arrangement" I thought, "How perfect would this be for him for Father's Day coming up!" I'm even going with the water cooler idea. That will be perfect since he could use this out on the farm! So thanks once again for these wonderful ideas!!

  5. I've made hundreds of these, I love using mugs and baskets flower pots caddies etc, my favorite one I did for a man had all slim jims and beef jerkies in a hunting mug. I also did up a gum lovers one, chip lovers, and healthy snack ones, one time I had a request for sugar free candy the trick is to buy supplies in bulk and especially the floral foam....
