I wanted to make a quick fun gift for my mother in law for Mother’s Day from the kids. I had a lot of candy coupons. I went to Walmart to see what I could get. I was able to get a bunch of candy very frugally and make it into a Mother’s Day Bouquet. I had priced these out at another grocery store in the floral department. They were $19.99!!
When I went to Walmart, I was able to get some inexpensive candy:
- Oreo Milka Bars- $1.00 each minus $.55 coupon= $.45 Each
- Hershey’s Gold Bars- $.78 Each minus $1.00 off= $.28 Each
- Tic Tacs- $1.14 minus a $.50 coupon plus at $.50 Ibotta Rebate= $.14 Each
The Reeses was from Walgreens when I needed an extra item it turned out to be $.65
The vase was an upcylced prigles can. I had the other materials on hand.
I began by covering the Pringles Can with the shelf paper. I had this leftover from another project as I did the ribbon, washi tape and the foam wreath form.
Then, I added cut up pieces of the wreath form. I stuck the pencils in the wreath form.
I then put all the pencils in. I taped the candy bars to the pencils. I added in the tuelle and the ribbons that I had on hand. I glued it in place with the hot glue gun.
I like how it turned out and I think she will like it. It is not as fancy as the $19.99 one at the grocery store. But, it used up materials I had, recycled an item, and cost $2.53 to make!!
What do you do for Mother’s Day? Do you make gifts? Do you find a way to use coupons to be able to give gifts?
Happy Mother’s Day!

I like yours much better. I would not pay 420 for candy.
Thanks, I appreciate it. I also try to teach my kids that you can make items for people and still bless them!!
I love the idea of those bouquets. I am now thinking about making one for my young adult nephew for his birthday. I may put a few bills instead of candy bars in there as well if I get it done. They could be rolled up like roses or something:)
Thanks, I am glad you like it! I have also seen some with little card picks like they have at the floral shop, holding a gift card. That would be cool too! Thanks for the comment!
I’ll see how my time goes. I don’t have those materials on hand, so it would require some running around to get them. I’m sure the dollar store has pencils, and so forth:).
Yes! The pencils I had leftover from goodie bags my daughter made for Valentine’s Day!
That’s a great way to use up some of those odds and ends that always get left behind from other projects, for sure:)
