This snack bouquet DIY guide is beginner-friendly even if you haven’t tried your hands at making snack bouquet or flower arrangements before.
Are you ready to jump right in?
#1 Getting ready
To make your snack bouquet, firstly, we need to gather all the necessary ingredients & tools. Here are what you need.
- Pick 3 - 4 snack packets: If it’s your first time DIY anything, it’s best to start with smaller sized & light items. For example, in this guide, use a single-served Sweet & Salty Popcorn packet from Serious Popcorn, a bar of Creamy Milk Coffee Chocolate from Krakakoa, and a Butterfingers Drip Coffee sachet from Hook Coffee. If you want to go for the intermediate, advanced, or expert level of difficulty, simply increase the number of packets you plan to include in your snack bouquet. Think about your recipient too when you plan your snack bouquet too. If they prefer healthy snacks, pick out healthy options to feature in your bouquet. (*And if you haven’t checked it out yet, at SnackGood, we have a great selection of healthy snacks, halal-certified snacks, and snacks that are suitable for vegans and vegetarians too)
- Bamboo sticks: Match the quantity with the number of snack packets you plan to include in your snack bouquet. Ideally, you should aim to use bamboo sticks that are approximately 30cm in length. If the sticks are too short, it will be hard for you to handle later on. If you don’t have bamboo sticks readily available at home, you can replace them with chopsticks, satay sticks, bamboo straws, or metal straws.
- Tapes: Make sure you have some strong tape ready. We use kraft tape in our guide, but sturdy scotch tape is sufficient too.
- Twine: Twine is for securing the “stems” together. You can use other types of strings, rubber bands, or potentially embroidery threads.
- Wrapping Papers in two colors: In our guide, we use brown paper for the inner layer and a red honeycomb wrapper for the outer layer. You can use gift wrapping papers leftover from Christmas, normal A4 paper, newspaper, magazines, wrapping papers leftover from moving houses, etc. Be resourceful.
- Ribbon: For the final touch. If you don’t have ribbons at home and don’t want to spend money on ribbons just for this project, you can consider making your own “ribbons” by cutting stripes of clothes from your old clothes, tote bags, scarves, etc.
#2 Create your snack “flower” stems
Once you have all the ingredients ready, it’s time to start making your very first petite snack bouquet. In this step, we will create the snack “flower” stems so that you can find your grip and arrange your bouquet. It’s very straightforward.
- Work on the backside of each of your snack packet
- Use tape to secure the bamboo stick to your snack packet
- Apply the same step for all snack packets you have
#3 Arrange your mini snack bouquet
Once your snack "flower" stems are ready, simply lay them on the table and arrange them. It’s hard to hold everything up when arranging your snack bouquet if you are new. So use the table for support so you can have more control with your grips.
Once you’re done, use twine to secure the petite snack bouquet you’ve arranged.
Start wrapping with the inner layer.
- Fold the paper to create the mountain shape at the top
- Position your bouquet in the middle of the wrapping paper
- Fold the paper in from left, and then right, and make sure to maintain your grips throughout so the bouquet doesn’t move
- You can open up and apply the same steps to adjust until you’re happy with the look and feel
- Once you’re happy, use twine to secure the wrapping position
Apply the same steps for the outer layer.
- Try to use wrappers in contrasting colors to make the color pop and help your snack bouquet stand out more
#5 Tie a ribbon
Add final touches by tying a ribbon. And that’s it, your mini snack bouquet is ready to melt someone's heart!
Give it a try and don’t be afraid to re-do and re-adjust till you get the look you want. Have fun and enjoy the process. Don’t forget to tag us your creations on Instagram at @snackgoodco 💚!
