Have you ever seen these adorable beverage bouquets in gift shops or on Pinterest and thought, “I can do that and for a lot less money!”? Well, yes you can!
Whether you are looking for a holiday themed gift, a hostess gift or just a small token of appreciation, these beverage bouquets are inexpensive, easy to do and beautiful!
- Floral Foam
- Beverage bottles/cans
- Candy, lollipops, gum
- Curling Ribbon
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Optional-cupcake liners, plastic Easter eggs
Cut a piece of the floral foam to fit right on top of the can then hot glue the foam onto the top of the beverage can.
Hint: invert the can and make an impression of the can’s top onto the foam as shown in the picture then cut around the impression.
If using a foam ball for a bottle, cut the bottom portion off to make it flat then using a melon baller, scoop out enough of the foam to fit perfectly on top of a beverage bottle. This step can be messy, but cutting it on a cutting board will make it easier to clean up the debris.
*Optional: Cover the foam with a cupcake liner. I often use so much ribbon that I skip this step.
Hot glue picks onto the candy and plastic eggs if using them. When dry randomly place picks, lollipops and plastic eggs into the foam.
Cut ribbon about 5 inches in length, tie onto a toothpick, curl with scissors and place the ribbon pick into the foam covering the bare spots.
*Optional: Design a special greeting card to add to the bouquet. I like to print out a small greeting, cover with packing tape or contact paper, cut it out and glue it to a toothpick to insert into the foam.
