She’s Crafty: Hershey’s Kiss Roses
Guest Post: Trish from Mom on Timeout has another fun Valentine’s Day Craft to share …I am loving these!
- Hershey’s Kisses
- floral tape
- wood dowels or floral sticks
- glue dots or double-sided tape
- clear or tinted cellophane
- ribbon (optional)
1. Pull out the white paper from the top of the candy. If the foil gets loose around the top of the kiss – just push it back together. Use glue dots or double-sided tape to adhere the bottom of the kisses together.
2. Wrap the kisses with a square piece of cellophane (about 3″x3″), pulling the edges together at the bottom. Insert the stick into the base of the rose to create the stem. (Be careful not to push the stick into the Hershey’s Kiss.) Wrap the cellophane tightly around the stick.
3. Use floral tape to secure the rose to the stem and continue taping down the stem. Wind the tape diagonally down the stem. Add in some rose leaves as you are taping. I used 1-2 per stem and placed them near the rose but you can place them anywhere along the stem.
4. Finish wrapping the floral tape along the length of the stem. Cut the tape and press tightly to make sure the tape doesn’t come off.

This is too funny! My sister made these for her wedding back in 1978, only she used the white covered almonds instead of the kisses and then wound satin around to make the rose petals.
