DIY chocolate bouquet

My future sister in law is a self confessed chocaholic. So when it was her birthday a few months ago, I knew exactly what I wanted to make for her – a chocolate bouquet. Not only was it fun to make, but it was a really thrifty gift.

I started off with a selection of chocolate, ribbons, tissue paper, kebab sticks, and old jar, cellotape and some flower oasis.

I cut the flower oasis (over a bin!) so that it fit into the jar easily – then about another 0.5cm all around to make space for the tissue paper to hide the oasis

Making the chocolates “stand up” is really simple – it just takes some cellotape and kebab sticks.

I arranged them in something that looked half decent…..

And tied a ribbon around the jar – all done. I do, however, need to go to bow tying school.

And there you have it – a really fun gift that takes less than 30 minutes to put together. If you don't have any oasis, you can use a cut up pool noodle or left over polystyrene.
