How to Make Your Own Candy Gram Valentine’s Day!

How to Make a Candy Gram for Valentine's Day

You could go to the local drug store and pick up a pre-made card, but a homemade candy gram for Valentine's Day is so much sweeter!

If you're not sure how to go about this crafty and yummy DIY project, we have all the steps for you. Just follow our guide below and deliver a personalized, pretty, and delicious candy gram to your loved ones on February 14!

Pick Your Style

There are so many types of candy grams like an edible flower bouquet, a candy wreath, and a candy-laden card. For the sake of simplicity for this project, we're modeling our DIY candy gram tutorial after a traditional card.

Shop For Candy

Should you decide to craft one of these oversized tokens of affection, the next step is to venture to your local candy store or favorite online destination for candy. Here, you can find a plethora of confectionery options to adorn your candy gram. Consider classics like heart-shaped lollipops, chocolate roses, and gummy bears for a touch of whimsy and romance. Alternatively, choose your valentine's favorite sweets to personalize the gesture further. A bulk candy purchase ensures you have enough to cover every inch of your candy gram and then perhaps a little extra for snacking while you work on your project ;)

You can of course create your own custom message. But for this example specifically, here's the candy you'll need to buy:

Write Your Message

What do you want to say to the one you love? If it's your kids, you can make it silly and sweet, but if it's for your significant other you might want to say something more romantic.

To help you out, use the script this creative crafter wrote (or the one above!):

"To my Sweettarts, you are Extra special to me. Thank you for everything! You give me love that is Good & Plenty, and I wouldn't trade you for a Pay Day! You make my Starburst! Never thought I'd Skor a man who makes me Snickers so much! I'm so happy we found each other in this Milky Way. I love you to Reeses Pieces my Big Hunk!"

Or try this one: "Happy Valentine's Day to my SweetTart. You are so aaah-M&Ms-azing. When I'm with you I feel like I'm on the Milky Way or just won 100 Grand! I don't care if people Snickers because I love you to Reese's Pieces. You are my LifeSaver. What did I do to score a Hot Tamales like you?"

Get Gluing

Once you know what you want to say, write your message on your card stock or foam core and start glueing your candies where they fit into the script. Remember, leave some room when you're writing so everything looks as lovely as it will taste!
