DIY Gum Bouquet

I’m sharing another fun gift today and I think it might be one of my favorite gifts yet.  This gift was inspired by the wonderful office staff at my school.  I wanted something I could give them to thank them for all that they do for me and all the teachers.

But now that I put this simple DIY gum bouquet together, I think everyone needs one on their desk.  I know my hubby would love one of these on his desk and I definitely need one.

Do you know what makes this gum bouquet extra cool?  The new Extra® 35-stick pack that I found in the checkout line at CVS.

The best part is – there is no need to take the packs of gum out of the cute vase when someone wants a piece because the pack easily flips open.  How awesome is that?  The new Extra® 35-stick pack features durable, recycled packaging and features more gum.

35 sticks = more than 2 packs.  Woohoo!  More gum means the pack lasts longer.

Never worry about running out of gum again with this fun DIY Gum Bouquet that is super easy to make.


  • vase, mug or mason jar
  • 3 Extra® 35-stick packs
  • shredded paper filler
  • bamboo skewers
  • glue gun


Step 1:  Fill vase with shredded paper filler.

Step 2:  Use your glue gun to glue skewers to the back of the gum.

Step 3:  Place skewers into vase.  The shredded paper will hold it in place.

That’s it!  A fun 3 step project that also makes a great gift.

It’s time to “Give Extra, Get Extra” with a fun gum bouquet!  This would be a great gift for a teacher, your boss, secretary – pretty much anyone.  And while you’re making one, you might as well go ahead and make one for yourself too.  Everyone will come by you if you have a cute gum bouquet sitting on your desk.  I might make one just to keep on my counter for when my neighbors come over.
