“Sweet 16” Candy Bouquet

My oldest turned 16 last month!  S I X T E E N ! ! ! I can’t believe I have a child who is old enough to drive.  As far as teenagers go, we scored!  Jacob is a great kid… kind, thoughtful, funny, responsible, trustworthy.  I am so grateful!  When I asked him what he wanted for his 16th birthday, he jokingly said, “candy!”  I had wanted to make something fun for him to wake up to on his special day, and this sparked an idea.  I went to work making him a “SWEET 16” candy bouquet in a galvanized bucket.  I found the bucket at Walmart for under $3 and I loved that it had a chalkboard label already on it.  I used my Cricut Expressions 2 to cut the letters on white vinyl, purchased a package of wooden dowels, a piece of floral foam, a ton of candy, and a 1 and 6 balloon (only $1 each, also from Walmart).  I grabbed my glue gun and went to work.  Check out this simple tutorial (below) to make one of your own.
