Sucker bouquet

My brother turned 40 today. He keeps telling everyone he's 29 but we all know better. I decided to make his birthday a little more fun.

This is a sucker bouquet. Very easy to make! I used a crystal light container from walmart for the base. I added a glass jar of cherries inside the container to weight it down. Next use a 6 inch Styrofoam ball covered in tissue paper for the center. Tissue paper can be colored or plain. I used a glittered white piece. I cut the words on my cricut using DS and Don Juan. Layered the happy birthday sentiment and the word sucks. Stickles on the stars for a bit of bling. While that dries cove the container with a piece of paper cut to fit.

Once the words are cut hot glue skewers to the back. Use 2 skewers for the big words and 1 for the numbers. Orientate the skewers to fit the ball. I placed Happy Birthday towards the bottom, then stuck in the Sucks and finally 40 on top.

Now comes the fun part. You need 2 bags of blow pops or similar type of suckers and a 5 lb bag of dum dums. Start pushing them in to cover all the bare spots.
