.:Tutorial Tuesday - Gumball Bouquets:.

For Reece's birthday, I saw a picture online of gumball bouquets. (I have no clue where I saw it, so if it was you, let me know!)

I thought they were so cute and such a fun decoration - perfect for her candy party!

What you need:

- gumballs (large and small)
- cellophane
- elastics
- balloon sticks (from Zurcher's - they were long so I cut them in half)
- balloon cups (also from Zurcher's)
- small bowl

Start off by cutting a square of cellophane and placing it over your bowl.

Lay your gumballs in your bowl, on top of the cellophane.

Attach your balloon cup to your balloon stick.

Put your balloon cup over your large gumball, and pinch up the cellophane around your gumballs.

Use an elastic to secure the cellophane. I used Reece's hair elastics and they were perfect! You can still shift them around if it doesn't look quite how you want it!

Put your bouquet in a vase and admire it.

Then put it on display at the candy bar at the candy party!
