I guess I have been on somewhat of a Hershey’s Kiss kick as of late (view my: Hershey Kiss Mice) but honestly what would Valentines Day be without them? So here is another fun (and popular) craft that you can make…Hershey Kiss Roses!
Step 1: Take the paper tails off of 2 red hershey kisses (You can also use the regular silver ones and just use red cellophane instead of clear) and glue or tape them together so they look like this:
Step 2: Cut a square of cellophane (which can be purchased in rolls, and in various colors, at most craft stores) that is big enough to be wrapped around your kisses. Hold a piece of floral wire into the opening with the cellophane wrapped around the outside of your wire.
Step 3: Starting at the top (by your hershey kisses) wrap your wire with floral tape, making sure you tuck in the ends of your cellophane.***Floral tape can be kind of tricky, so you might need a little practice. It is best to use a larger wire, especially if you haven’t ever used floral tape before. You can also practice by taping around a pen and then once you get the hang of that you can try doing it around your wire. Just remember to pull the tape as you wrap because the tape actually sticks together with a wax that only really becomes sticky when you stretch the tape.*** When you get to the end just rip off the tape and push your end down so it will stick.
Step 4: You can then go back and use floral tape to attach some artificial leaves. (Or you can also use Jolly Ranchers as leaves)
Happy Valentines Crafting!
