My father is allergic to sugar so I cannot make him a yummy cake or brownies for Father’s Day and instead of the usual old shirt & tie I decided to make him a Snack/Munchies bouquet. I started with a glass cracker jar so after he has eaten all of the goodies it can be reused. It’s better than using something that just gets thrown in the trash. Inside of it I put in some cinnamon discs and butterscotch discs for decoration and it gives him something to share with the ladies at work. In the middle I put a few small cans of V-8 juice (one of his favorite drinks). Then I took a swimming noodle (you can use floral foam wedges but they tend to be more expensive) and cut it down so it would sit on top of the cans and be level with the rim of the cracker jar. I wrapped the noodle in tissue paper and placed it on top of the cans. I cut some other small pieces of noodle to place around the center piece to keep it wedged in the neck of the jar to prevent movement. Next, I hot glued bamboo skewers to the back of the snacks. You can get about 100 of them for $1.50 at the grocery store or use dowel rods from the hobby store. I picked some bags of his favorite chips, peanuts, beef sticks, crackers,etc. Once you have it arranged the way you like it, flute the tissue paper and attach the bow and some ribbon. This can be used for many different occasions, even children’s birthdays with some of their favorite candies or small toys.

I’ve seen this done before with candy bars, but I love that you used snacks instead! I’m pinning this for next Father’s Day, my husband would love it! I’ll keep it in mind and customize it for other occasions too. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Terrific idea. My husband is always looking for something to snack on and it can be made with his favorite snacks.
