Need a teacher’s gift or a valentine party favor? Here are our instructions for a Mini Flower Pot filled with candy. Just the right size for giving. And it pairs perfectly with our flower pot valentine card holder. Stay tuned for that tutorial tomorrow.
Supplies: paper drinking cups, brown cupcake liners, white glue, suckers, artificial flowers, extra sucker sticks, green floral tape or other tape, and candy
1. Using a regular sized brown cupcake liner, smooth out the center to make it a little larger in order to fit the top of the cup.
2. Pull apart an artificial flower. Using the sucker as the flower’s center, add petals and leaves to the sucker stick. To make the flower stem longer, attach a longer sucker stick to the original sucker stick and tape with green floral tape or similar tape. Or you can try re-attaching the flower stem. Just make sure and trim the stem to fit the cup.
3. Dip the rim of the cup into a puddle of white glue then carefully fill the cup with candy (avoiding the gluey edges).
4. Press the cup cake liner to the gluey edge of the cup until it’s stuck. Once dry, carefully poke one or more sucker flowers into the top.
