This post is all about how to create a Valentine Lollipop Bouquet. It makes for a fun little gift for your kids, co-workers, or teachers. The best thing is that it’s so easy to make and cheap, too!
Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday for decorating and crafting. To me, all the red and pink hearts, roses, and frilly stuff are so cute and endearing. But my most favorite thing about this love-filled holiday are the little surprise gifts and messages that I give and get. You don’t need a holiday to express your love and appreciation for someone. But it is nice to have a day once a year that’s all about L.O.V.E.
But what do you do when you have so many people to show love to? You just spent a small fortune on Christmas presents and are still recovering from those expenses. Enter Dollar Tree. It’s the answer to how you can show some extra love to your kids, family, friends, teachers and co-workers with the cutest little thoughtful gifts without breaking the bank.
Now if you can’t afford to send every person you know a $400 box of Venus et Fleur eternity roses, then you’re in luck. With this Valentine Lollipop Bouquet, you’ll get your thoughtfulness across with just as much appreciation. And you won’t have to go broke doing so.
Everything you need for this Valentine Lollipop Bouquet is at the Dollar Tree…
Oh, how I love that I can decorate and craft on the cheap with supplies from the Dollar Tree. On Valentine’s Day, simply giving someone a small trinket, card or message is enough to show your love and appreciation. That’s why the Dollar Tree is the perfect place to find supplies for crafting something special to give to your loved ones, teachers, or co-workers.
Everything you need to create this Valentine Lollipop Bouquet is at the Dollar Tree. And, it costs just $4 to make it! However, if you don’t have a Dollar Tree nearby, I’m confident you can find alternatives at shops like Walmart, Target, and Amazon (although at a higher price point). I’ll include alternatives in the supplies list.
Supplies You’ll Need for this Valentine Lollipop Bouquet:
- Heart-shaped gift box. Heart shaped gift box from Target here.
- Floral foam discs (2 pack).
- 2 bags Charms mini pops (you can also use Dum-Dums lollipops). I used an exact total of 52 lollipops to complete this project.
Note: You’ll also need a pen, a knife, and a glue gun plus glue sticks.
How to Make this Adorable Valentine Lollipop Bouquet:
Honestly, this craft is so simple to create, you may not even need my instructions. But if you want to know exactly how I created this Valentine Lollipop Bouquet, here’s how:
Place the base of the heart-shaped gift box on top of one floral foam disc. Center it as much as possible and trace the shape of the heart onto the foam disc.
Using a knife, carefully cut the foam along the line you traced. Then use the second foam disc to cut half moon shapes that will fit into the extra gaps. This doesn’t have to be perfect because the lollipops will cover the foam. They just need something to stick into.
Use a glue gun to attach all three foam pieces to the inside bottom of the heart-shaped box.
Beginning at the bottom point of the heart-shaped box, insert a lollipop into the foam as deep as it can go. Continue all the way around the edge of the heart-shaped box and then into the interior till the lollipops completely cover the foam.
Don’t worry if the tops of the lollipops remain above the rim of the box. Just like those gorgeous everlasting rose bouquets in boxes, the lid isn’t meant to be closed over the lollipops. It looks so much cuter when you leave the lid resting on top of the lollipops, exposing the sweet surprise inside.
And there you have it! An adorable and affordable Valentine Lollipop Bouquet that is so easy and fun to make! Anyone would love to receive this sweet gift from you, and I promise you’ll enjoy giving it just as much.
