Happy Friday Again! My Lollipop Garden Quilt header is perfect for today's theme.
Last Friday I was busy making a cake for my son's Birthday. I was able to take a photo just in the nick of time before it gone!
FYI - I use home made butter cream frosting and added the zest, instead of the tub of frosting and cool whip.
Here is what I made with all the candy that laying around the kitchen last week.
It is a Candy Bouquet! Here are the steps to making one.
Find a large vase and fill with with some candy. I used Hershey's kisses.
Cut a swimming noodle to fit in the neck of the vase.
Using a couple squares of tissue paper wrap the noodle and insert into the neck of the vase.
Using Bamboo sticks (I bought them at the grocery store near the grilling supplies). Hot glue the candy to the sticks. I also included a gift card. I think photos or a CD would be fun too. I used varying lengths of sticks but just snapping off a piece from the top.
Then you insert the candy sticks into the swimming noodle arranging as you would flowers.
After all the candy is in place, I tucked pinched squares of tulle to fill in the gaps. You can also use colored tissue paper. I used a pre-made bow to decorate the vase.
And there you have it! Who wouldn't love one of these? Andrew sure did!
Yay! I finished my flying geese quilt top. My goal is to get it basted today.
Warm weather has finally reached us in NJ! I was able to enjoy my favorite quilting location.
And of course coco is loving the yard time with me!
Happy Weekend Everyone!
