A wife, a mom, a full time job and a craft obsession that borders OCD. My goal is too turn my crafty treasures into a business that I love. Here I will share the ups & downs, lessons learned, new experiences and maybe even some mom humor :) It's that thing called life, and what you make of it is up to you. Sometimes brilliant and sometimes messy, having fun along the way!

100 Days of Holiday Inspiration-Candy Gift Basket-19 Days & Counting
Similar to the Hair Bow Gift Basket, I came up with this one as a gift for 3 teenagers that were very helpful to the little Mighty Might Cheerleaders, running errands and babysitting my 4 year old (that will wear out even the most energetic youth). It's really easy to make and a great idea when you are past the toy stage and would still like to get them a gift instead of just money or a gift card (however, teenagers do love that gas money!).
Gift basket or pot
I used snack size candy bars.
Put the floral foam in the base of your basket. I have also used flower pots before; you can paint them to match the theme of your gift or holiday.
Next I took the candy bars and used small amounts of duck tape to secure them to the skewers.
Arrange them as you desire.
And that's it!
What types of gift baskets have you made? I'd love to hear all about them!
