Gather your materials for the chocolate bouquet project

1. Prepare the Chocolate Truffles

To begin, cut pieces of floral wire long enough to serve as stems, with some extra length to allow for wrapping a few truffles together.

Starting from the middle of each piece of wire, wrap three truffles together.

This process is fairly easy: simply wrap the wire around and between the truffles.

2. Prep the Floral Foam

First, determine whether you'll be using fresh or dried flowers.

If opting for fresh blooms, purchase a block of green floral foam. Soak the foam in water to provide moisture for your arrangement.

Next, cut a plastic container to fit inside the cardboard gift box. This will prevent the moisture from the floral foam from soaking into the box.

Alternatively, use dry floral foam if using faux or dried flowers.
