DIY Craft Project: Protein Bar Bouquet

My local supermarket floral department makes really cute "Candy Bar Bouquets" and as I was walking by a display of them the other day I thought I'm going to make a healthier version that I can have. I watched a few online how-to videos and picked up most of my supplies at the Dollar Store. I think it came out super cute!

It would be a great gift for a fellow health and fitness conscience pal, teacher's gift, personal trainer, support group leader, friend having surgery, doctor's office staff, or Mom.

What you need:

Container: Small Vase or Mug
Foam Pool Noodle
Serrated Knife
An Assortment of Protein Bars
Wooden Skewers
Garden Pruners or Heavy Duty Scissors
Clear Packing Tape
Ribbons, Tissue Paper, Silk Flowers to decorate

Tape wooden skewers to the back of your protein bars. You may have to cut the skewers down a bit depending on the size of your container. Heavy duty scissors or garden pruners work great for this. Set aside.

Cut the pool noodle to fit your container. Insert it into your container. You can cover the noodle with tissue to hide it or use ribbon like I did. There won't be a lot visible after you insert all your protein bars.

Insert your skewered protein bars into noodle in sort of a fanned out pattern. Amount of bars you need will depend on the size of your container.

Jazz up your bouquet with ribbon and silk flowers. That's it. It was an easy and fun DIY craft project. If you make one I'd love to see it snap a pic and tag it with #Eggface on Instagram or Twitter or message me the photo on Facebook.
