Candy is almost always a welcome gift, but you can make it more attractive by making a candy rose. A whole bouquet can be made using different colors of tissue paper to add color, or you could make a dozen long stemmed roses for someone special to enjoy. A few roses stuck into a coffee mug filled with candy is a good all-occasion gift. Older children can make their own roses to give to loved ones as well.
Things You'll Need
- Chocolate kisses
- Red tissue paper
- Silk leaves
- Wood skewer
- Clear tape
- Florist's tape
Place 2 chocolate kisses together with the flat bottoms touching. Secure them together with a loop of clear tape.
Layer 3 squares of red tissue paper that are each approximately 6 x 6 inches. Drape over the top of the kisses and twist around the point of the bottom kiss to secure.
Place a wooden skewer alongside the wrapped kisses, lining the tip of the skewer next to the twisted end of tissue. Secure them together with clear tape.
Begin wrapping the skewer with green florist's tape. Begin above the skewer approximately 1/3 up the bottom kiss. Continue wrapping until 1/2 inch of the skewer is covered in tape.
Arrange 2 to 3 leaves against the skewer and wrap the tape around their stems to fasten them neatly to the skewer. Continue wrapping until the entire skewer is covered.
