Hershey Kisses Rosebuds

Kay Leslie


Materials:

  • Hershey kisses
  • wooden floral picks with wire attached (I used 6")
  • pink or red cellophane**
  • green floral tape
  • artificial leaves

Method:

    1. Take two kisses, still in foil, place flat ends together
    2. Take a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of cellophane
    3. Place the kisses in the middle, bring the cellophane down around a point and twist tightly, this is your "rosebud".
    4. Holding the twisted end next to the floral stick and starting right at the base of the kisses, wrap the wire tightly around the twisted end of the "rosebud".
    5. Wrap the floral tape tightly around the wire and cellophane.
    6. While wrapping with tape add a leaf up next to the bud.

Tips:

  • You can go a bit smaller on your square size but it is trickier. Might want to have it a little big until you get the hang of making them.
  • If you start too far down on the twisted cellophane the bud will be floppy.
  • The tighter you can twist the cellophane and the tighter you wrap the wire the better your stem looks, not too bumpy.
  • After a few tries you will get the hang of it.
  • I have also seen other colors of cellophane used, yellow, blue or purple. A mixture of all the colors makes a great bouquet.
  • We taped 2 buds together, wrapped a rectangle of green cellophane and tied with a thin ribbon for the moms.
