Hershey’s Kisses Roses – A Sweet Valentine’s Day Bouquet

Hershey's Kisses Roses from MomOnTimeout.com | Perfect for weddings, Valentine's Day, anniversaries and more! #ValentinesDay #craft

Hershey’s Kiss Roses are a simple and sweet craft to make for Valentine’s Day.  My Mom was the one that introduced these to me many years ago.  She helped me make the roses as favors for my wedding so they definitely have special meaning to me.  While I was on my honeymoon my Mom had this made for me:

You can see the Hershey’s Kiss Rose on the bottom right.  The ribbon had our names and the wedding date printed on it.  This hangs in my bedroom on my side of the bed so I see it every night and every morning.  (I had the most beautiful wedding!)

They are really a breeze to make and you can have a “sweet” bouquet for the love of your life in no time.

Hershey’s Kisses
floral tape
wood dowels or floral sticks
glue dots or double-sided tape
clear or tinted cellophane
ribbon (optional)

Pull out the white paper from the top of the candy.  It may pull out easily or it may tear off.  Just make sure no paper is showing at the top.  If the foil gets loose around the top of the kiss – just push it back together.

Use the glue dots or double-sided tape to attach the bottom of the kisses together.

Wrap the kisses with a square piece of cellophane (about 3″x3″), drawing 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.

Use the 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.

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.

If you make up a bouquet, add in some floral roses and place a Hershey’s Kiss inside each rose:

Add a bow…

or ribbon to the stem…

    These are absolutely adorable!!!! Was going to make tootsie pop flowers, but they may have just been bumped!! LOL

  38. These are super cute! love the idea.

  39. So cute!! Where can you find the rose leaves (without a rose attached)?

    • Hi there! You can find them in the floral department of any craft store OR you can do what I did and buy a bunch of roses from the dollar store and remove the leaves :) Just slide the rose off the top and then slide off the leaves. If you buy them from the store they are usually attached to a metal stem that would make the wrapping easier.

  40. Super clever! And it seems you come from a crafty family, can’t believe your mom made that. So special! Thanks for linking to Refresh Your Nest Friday and hope to see you back there tomorrow!

  41. Love it!! I’ve made these before – and they’re really pretty!! I posted a link to this on my blog…thru my pinterest board!

  57. Approximately how long does it take for the kids to make this craft?

  58. I’m new to the whole craft thing, but these seem simple to do. I’m using a couple of floral wires instead to give the stem a bit more stem like effect. This will be the first thing my girlfriend will get Valentine’s day

  59. For the stems, I use pixie sticks and wrap them in floral tape. Kids love the added treat. I also, use colored cellophane to coordinate with the current theme.

  60. I just made these and they came out great! I used craft dowels which worked well. I played around with putting some kisses int he middle of the fake roses, but I didn’t like the look. My fake roses were not good quality, i had to get them at Walmart as there isn’t a craft store in my city. I also used plastic wrap instead of cellophane, I couldn’t find that either ( yes I live in the middle of no-where Western North Dakota) They will be for a bake sale to benfit Relay for Life. Since it’s right before V-Day i decided to make these as well. Great idea, thanks so much!
