Candy Roses

Since candy and flowers are a surefire way to let someone know you’re sweet on them these pretty pink roses made from chocolate kisses will cover you on both scores. You can do a bunch of these in under an hour.

What you will need:

Chocolate kisses
Pink plastic wrap
Green tape
Scotch tape
Green pipe cleaners
Green tissue paper

Instructions for the project:

Begin by forming the bud by taping two foil-wrapped candies bottom to bottom. Carefully drape a 5-inch square of pink plastic wrap over the top of one kiss, then gather the edges and twist them into a tail. When you have completed forming the flower tightly twist the top of a green pipe cleaner around the tail for the stem. Then you can add leaves by holding a strip of green tissue paper against the stem and rolling the pipe cleaner around the center of the strip. Be sure to trim the leaves so that they have pointy tips, and wrap green tape around the stem portion above the leaves to reinforce it.
