How to Make a Manly Valentine Bouquet
Begin by painting the wood skewers green to match the greenery. Tape the sticks to the back of the jerky sticks. I cut several of the sticks so they would be different lengths coming out of the vase.
Tie a ribbon around the vase before you fill it and it is much easier to handle.
Put only a handful of the candies at the bottom of the vase. Add the greenery to the vase followed by the jerky skewers and just move them around till the arrangement looks good. Tip: Have the highest point be the center and as the arrangement goes out to arrange shorter skewers.
Add additional candy to the vase to help hold the skewers in place. This will also help hide the skewers from view.
The last bit of candy you will want to place one by one so you can get the perfect placement to hide the skewers inside.
There you have it, a perfect Manly Valentine Bouquet!!
