DIY Bubble Gum Candy Bouquet
To make this bubble gum candy bouquet you will need: blue and polka dot cellophane, scotch tape, yellow curling ribbon, a flowerpot, blue shredded paper or plastic grass, Dubble Bubble Gum, glue, stem wire (16/18 ga), floral foam and tools such as wire cutters, scissors and a serrated knife.
Step 1. First you will need your flowerpot. You can choose any one that you would like for this project. In this example, I used a ceramic blue and yellow pot that is 5.5” in diameter because the colors go well with the Dubble Bubble Gum wrappers.
Step 2. Next, take your floral foam and cut it to fit snugly into your flowerpot. After, put the floral foam in the center of a piece of blue cellophane. Wrap the cellophane around your piece of foam and place it into your flowerpot. You want the foam to be approximately 1 inch lower than the pot’s lip.
Step 3. Use plastic decorative blue grass or blue shredded paper to cover up the foam.
Step 4. Make flowers out of bubble gum.
b) Use green floral tape to attach 3 pieces of bubble gum together. Start by attaching a piece of gum to the end of your bamboo skewer or wire. Next, 1-2” from the top of the wire or skewer, join another piece of gum. Repeat this one more time to add the third piece of gum, however on the other side of the wire or skewer.
Wrap the remainder of the skewer with floral tape if you have used a bamboo skewer so that it is entirely green. If you used stem wire, it is already green so this step is not necessary.
In this example, I created 10 flowers with Dubble Bubble Gum. Of these, I made 3 taller than the other 7 for placement in the back of the arrangement.
Step 5. Use cellophane to wrap the flowers.
c) Make a cone out of your cellophane by pulling it around the flower. It should sit right below the bubble gum flower. Use yellow ribbon to tie it in place. Then, to finish it off, fluff out the cellophane to make it look fuller.
Step 6. Now, place your flowers in to the flowerpot. Make sure that the longer stemmed ones are inserted in the back of the arrangement. Organize the flowers so that they look attractive.
Step 7. You can add more blue cellophane to your bouquet if you would like it to look more filled in. To do so, use floral picks.
Your bubble gum candy bouquet is ready!
