Medium size basket
Miniature candy bars
Hot glue gun
Gift cards (if desired)
To start we placed some floral foam in the bottom of the basket. I like to cover at least 3/4 of the bottom.
Next we used the hot glue to attach the candy and gift cards to the skewers. I bought a bunch of $5 gift cards to different places such as Starbucks, Subway, Chick-fil-a, etc.
Then I cut tissue paper into four squares each. I like to use a variety of colors and prints. Gather it as if you were putting it in a small gift bag and then place the skewer through it.
Begin positioning them one by one in the basket. It will look better the more you fill.
Once the basket has an even distribution of candy and tissue paper begin adding the skewers by themselves to fill the holes.
I am lucky my little helper did not eat them all before we were done!
I hope they enjoy it!
