Directions

Place the 2 Hershey Kisses candies together with the flat sides touching. Wrap the 2 candy kisses with the cellophane. Cut 4 ” cross-sectional slits around the hole at the bottom of the calyx. Twist the bottom of the cellophane and insert it through the hole at the bottom of the calyx.

 

Cut the floral wire in half. Insert the floral wire into the twisted portion of the cellophane, but be careful not to pierce through the candy. Tape the twisted portion of the cellophane to the floral wire with a small piece of Scotch tape.

 

Beginning at the base of the rose, wrap approximately 3”of the floral tape around the floral wire stem. Add the rose leaves and continue wrapping the stem with the floral tape until you reach the end of the floral wire.

 

Tie on a bow if desired with the ribbon.
