In this little corner of the world I get lost in creativity; a craft project, an article or just in thought.

Chocolate Candy Flower Pot

These adorable . . .
chocolate candy flower pots . . . 
make the perfect cute little gift, party favors, or table decoration for a special day!

I have designed candy creations such as this one for almost every occasion! Who knows perhaps I'll publish a book one day with various candy project instructions!



Secure a Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup to a cardboard base of  3" on all sides. Double sided tape was used to hold candy to base.

press Hershey's Miniatures to sides of Reese's Peanut Butter cup, allowing the tape  gently hold them upright.
Use 5 Hershey Mini's around the Mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
Tie a ribbon around all 5 of the Hershey Miniatures. This will secure the chocolate pieces.
Cut 4 green pieces of paper 3" x  1 1/2". Fold the paper vertically at 1/2 inch. With a regular scissor or should you have a pair of Martha Stewart's fringe scissors, make cuts on small side of fold along the 3" long side of the paper to represent grass blades.
Bend the paper so that the grass blades are in the correct position. Attach paper strip to bottom of base with glue or double sided tape.

Once all four sides have grass, it is now time to put the flowers in the pot!
  
Flowers can be secured to the inside of the flower pot by some glue dots or double sided tape.

These flower pots would definitely make sweet place settings! Just add a toothpick with name attached!

  8. My oldest child is such a chocolate lover. This would be a fabulous birthday gift for her. Heck, just giving her chocolate would be one of her favorites. Would love to see other designs that you've done.
