Chocolate Roses

How about a fun Valentines craft to get you going on your Monday. I have made these a couple of times and every time i do i get great feedback on them. My father-in-law was so impressed when he saw them he told me that i should open up a stand on the side of the road and sell them. While i appreciated the comment you will not be seeing me out your car window any time soon.
So here is your Monday craft, isn't it so pretty.....

Here is what you will need: Red cellophane, Hershey's kisses, some fake flowers w/stems(i got this bunch at Wal-mart for $1.50), green florist tape and some scissors.

Fist take all the tops(fake flowers) off your stems and take all the leaves off too, they usually just pop off. Then cut out a square of red cellophane.

Next put two Hershy's kisses bottoms together and wrap the cellophane over them and gather it together at the bottom. Sorry about my ugly fingers in the picture, yes i am rather embarrassed by what years of doing hair has done to my hands.

Then you take one of the stems and stick it where the sun don't shine, just kidding, stick it up in the cellophane just behind the kisses a little. Then take the florist tape and start wrapping the tape around the bottom of the beautiful rose bud you just created. Keep on wrapping, pulling it taunt but not too tight or the tape will break. Keep wrapping until you've covered all your cellophane up and don't forget to grab one of the leaves you popped off and tape it back in by the rose bud.

And there you have it. This is the bouquet i made today. I am giving these out to Cody's Preschool teacher and the teachers aids in his class.

  1. Fun idea. The pre-made chocolate roses are pricey. Yours turned out so cute.
