Place the felt in the cup. I added a couple of rocks at the bottom to offset the weight of the candy stems. Break apart a piece of Styrofoam and place it inside the cut. You will insert the skewers into the Styrofoam to hold the candy stems in place.
Trim your wooden skewers to desired length. Hot glue the blunt side of the wooden skewers to the backs of the candy and allow the glue to cool.
Insert the pointy side of the candy skewers into the Styrofoam. Arrange candy as desired. Mix it up and use different candies or even a stuffed animal. Don't want to spend $9 per arrangement? Ditch the Godiva and grab a Hershey's Bar. You could use a red Dixie Cup instead of a fancy container (just make sure you place something heavy at the bottom).
Just to tease my kids, I placed the two candy bouquets on top of the mantel.
