Birthdays SUCK

Birthdays sorta suck at my age so I figured why not make the memory a little sweeter.

This is how I made the sucker/flower bouquets for my friend Chris.

Simply use some tootsie roll pops and Mike and Ikes plus it doesn't hurt to have a little flower foam on hand.
Then you slice the Mike and Ike's in half and stick them on the tootsie roll pops. You have to stick them on pretty quickly or the "stickiness" wears off and you want to keep them edible and not have to use glue so do it fast. Only cut a couple at a time.

Then I took a mason jar and filled it with birdseed, since she likes birds and the garden and tied a ribbon on the package. I also made one with a tiny planting pot and just stuck the suckers right into the floral foam. I sprinkled left over Mike and Ike's over the floral foam to cover it up.

Super simple sweet gift for a birthday :D
