I have been crushing on all the candy and flower arrangements out on the blogaritaville Easter parties. I have sweet glass containers...I could stand to sacrifice a little sugar to decorating...it was only a matter of time
These don't really reqiure a tutorial - its candy in a pedestal vase. But I do have a few tips to share, because I like tips and peeps. Tippin it to the peeps. Ok, maybe I ate a little to much sugar while putting this together :)
Tip #1 - If you're using a tall thinish vase (like the dollar store vase/candle holder that I am) an empty TP roll stuffed with paper takes up some space so that you don't need quite so many jelly beans
Tip #2 - These take ALOT of jelly beans. I had 5 bags to make 4 arrangements. I need to get more to finish the other 3 (and maybe beef up the finished one). Thank goodness these bags o beans only cost a dollar (I used Brach's pastel jelly beans).
Tip #3 - To keep the peeps pressed to the glass while you're adding a layer of jelly beans, stick a jelly bean between the peep and the tp roll
Tip #4 - Try not to eat your arrangement :)
