MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES NEEDED:
- Hershey’s Kisses
- Double-sided tape (optional)
- Colored cellophane
- 18-guage florist wire (cut in two equal lengths with wire cutters to get more roses per pack, or makes long-stemmed rosebuds if you desire)
- Green florist tape
- Silk rose leaves (optional)
- Ribbon (optional)
- Scissors (to cut the cellophane into squares)
- Wire cutters (to cut the wires in half, or trim the rose stems after they are made)
1: Optional first step: Using a small square of the double-sided tape, stick two foil-wrapped Hershey’s Kisses together, bottom to bottom. This isn’t strictly necessary, but it helps some folks handle the kisses while wrapping. (see photo below).
2: Take a four-inch square of cellophane. Place the tip of one of the kisses in the center of the square, then wrap the cellophane around both kisses, gathering the corners together around the tip of the other kiss. Wrap the gathered corners together as tightly as you can without tearing the florist tape. (see photos below).
3: Insert a florist wire into the gathered cellophane until it meets the tip of the Hershey’s Kiss. (see photo below).
4: Tape the “rosebud” onto the wire with the florist tape. Continue taping down the length of the wire until it is completely covered. (see photo below).
5: Optional: Tape the silk rose leaves onto the stem, and/or decorate with a ribbon bow.
