Scare up a sweet candy boo-quet for Halloween for a table centerpiece and little ghouls and goblins.
With Halloween around the corner,
I’m sharing an easy and sweet DIY for little ghouls and goblins!
This Candy Boo-quet is easy to scare up and makes a festive centerpiece
for your table or to share with trick or treaters.
I found this candy bowl at HomeGoods, a favorite haunt, a couple of months ago. . .
I like to keep the “happy” in Halloween and the face was so goofy
I laughed out loud when I saw it!
I used orange and black twist pops, swirl lollies and Peeps Marshmallow Ghosts for my Candy Boo-quet
but you could “skewer” miniature candy bars or use the candy of your choice.
In addition to your candy, you’ll need some bamboo skewers,
Halloween straws and block of craft floral foam.
Instead of a bowl, you could use a vase or pitcher to hold your skewers.
I found my skewers and craft floral foam at Dollar Tree,
Halloween straws at the Dollar Spot at Target and HomeGoods.
You also find Halloween straws on Amazon if you can get them in time.
I cut the foam to fit the bowl and covered it with plastic wrap
to protect the candy that would come in contact with the foam.
I also added some plastic grocery bags to fill in the gap around foam and bowl
to prevent the candy corn from falling down to the bottom of the bowl.
Arrange your skewers in the foam at varying heights or whatever looks good to you.
If you’re using lollipops, you’ll need to shorten your skewers as the stick
will take up part of the length of your straw.
After arranging and shortening some of the skewers,
I filled the top of the vase with candy corn to conceal the foam.
Add the lollipops to your straws.
If you’re using Peeps, you’ll want to leave enough length on the top of your skewer
exposed to attach the marshmallow before covering your skewer with a straw.
Then you’re ready to slide the straws over your skewers.
Cut some length off your straws as needed to adjust your height in your boo-quet.
Your Candy Boo-quet makes an easy centerpiece for a Happy Haunting!

Mary, this is a darling boo-quet! My girls would adore it and it would be easy for them to make. Happy Thursday! 🧡🎃🖤
VERY VERY CLEVER and CUTE!! ❤️🎃❤️🎃
Where in the world did you find ghost peeps….I HAVE LOOKED EVERYWHERE!!!!!
Hi Mary Anne, I found ghost Peeps at Target. 🎃🧡👻
Mary, your creativity is endless!! LOVE the bowl! Have already been on Target’s website, but it’s not to be found. 😢 You find the cutest things!! I love all of your blog posts! Happy Howl-oween to you and yours.
Thank you Sheryl! I found the candy bowl at HomeGoods back in August when their Halloween merchandise starts rolling in. 🎃🧡👻
Thanks for the clarification. I realized I had looked at Target instead of Homegoods. I found a bowl on the Homegoods website, but it’s not as cute as yours! 😊. Maybe next year!
Mary, Your boo-quet is adorable! Love it! Clara ❤️
Mary, it’s just adorable! Thanks for all the Halloween inspiration
It’s my favorite time of year too.
Mary, this “booquet” is absolutely precious! The container you chose made me smile. I’m throwing a small Halloween party on Saturday. I may have to make a “booquet” for my buffet. Thanks so much for sharing! Have a wonderful day!
So darling, your trick or treaters must love you!
You continue to be the cleverest person ever!
Love this! So clever of you and easy to follow directions,
A wonderful post. So Halloween.

I love the idea of a candy bouquet, especially like the one you have that includes flowers. Sadly, it would never last in my home. Zero willpower. None. World’s shortest lasting bouquet in recorded history. 🎃👻🎃👻
The candy bouquet is just the cutest thing ever! You have the best ideas! Will use it next year
A candy bouquet! I love it! And so adorable!
So incredibly cute Mary! I love your HG find, so much fun and I can just hear the screams of delight when your treat sticks spotted by a child! I love how you covered the foam with candy corn, so adorable!
Your container is certainly a happy one, Mary, and the bouquet of sweets is perfect. You find the best things at HomeGoods. Happy weekend!
