Bouquets from candies became a popular gift not so long ago. They are given to darlings, girlfriends, mothers, teachers and everything who would like to make the pleasant. Prime cost of such gift does not exceed the price of a box of candies but not many own art of production of candy bouquets. Here it is also necessary to buy from handymen in two or more times more expensive than their prime cost. But if to learn to do bouquets of candies the hands, for one evening it is possible to make an exclusive and tasty gift, having spent only for candies and material for a bouquet.
So that is necessary for production of a bouquet:
- favourite candies (it is so much, how many will be flowers – 5, 7, 11 or more);
- crepe paper of green color;
- crepe paper pink, yellow or red (on your taste);
- the long wooden skewers pointed since one end;
- simple pencil;
- green threads;
- brown paper for a bouquet.
How to do flowers for a candy bouquet
On pink paper we draw and we cut out rectangles.
Them it is necessary for each flower of 5 pieces, that is we multiply amount of future colors on 5. I do not specify the exact size of rectangles as it depends on the size of the chosen candies. The rectangle on length has to be couple centimeters longer than some candy. Width of a rectangle has to be such that they could wrap up candy more, than half.
We give to each rectangle the form of a petal: from below we cut off corners, and we do the top part rounded off.
Now petals need to be "recovered" a little, that is to make more similar to the presents, flower. For this purpose we stretch the rounded-off top of each petal fingers thanks to what the edge becomes wavy a little. Here it is important to do it very accurately not to tear paper at extension.
Core of a petal should be stretched a little too in the parties, so it will become more volume and will easier "lay down" on candy. So we prepare all petals.
On a skewer we string candy.
We wrap candy on a skewer in the first petal. Thus the upper edge of a petal has to be a little longer than some candy. And we press bottom edge of a petal to a skewer.
We wrap in the second petal candy on a skewer on the other hand. As you can see, our petals volume and well settle down on candy.
Thus, we have also other petals round candy. When them there are five (or how many it is pleasant to you), primatyvay a thread bottom edges of petals to a skewer.
Now we cut out "grass" which is required to us to wrap up it a bottom of each bud from green paper. Respectively, the quantity of "grass" corresponds to quantity of the made colors. Height of each grass can be 3 cm, and width – about 6 cm for each flower.
The turned-out grass wound each bud from below. By a green thread it is fixed this grass on a skewer.
We cut out a tape 2 cm wide from green paper, and about 30 cm long. These tapes we do by amount of colors.
We wind with these tapes a stalk of each flower, that is a skewer. The ends of a tape it is fixed on a skewer by means of a green thread.
When all flowers are ready, it is possible to start assembly of a bouquet. Here already everything depends on your imagination and the available materials. Cellophane wrappers for flowers, a decorative grid, tapes (fabric or paper), a crepe paper of different flowers will approach.
Also readers of InfoAdvisor.net can make not simply a bouquet of candies, and a flowers basket. It can be made in two ways. First way: take a ready wattled basket, fill it with foam rubber, from above close foam rubber decorative paper or fabric and insert into it skewers with candy flowers. Second way: the external part of a ready basket or an equal flower pot can be pasted over with a dense row from long candies. The space between stalks of candy flowers can be filled with the "grass" made of a green crepe paper.
Some councils finally
- For the girl it is possible from candies to attach a small soft toy to a bouquet.
- If give money, wrap notes in a tubule and accurately wrap up them the end of a skewer. From above, by means of a thread, attach petals, as in a usual "candy" flower. Insert a monetary flower into a bouquet among "candy" flowers.
- The bouquet from candies can be absolutely small and "be applied" to the main gift. If the candy bouquet is given as an independent gift, then it has to contain enough candies and have a presentable appearance.
