Learn how to make a Hershey Kiss Rose with these step-by-step instructions. They are easy to make and make a unique gift for Valentine’s Day, bridal showers, birthdays or just because. Each Hershey Kiss Rose costs about 50-cents to make and takes very little time.
They require a few items: Hershey Kisses, floral wire, floral tape, tulle or cellophane, and ribbon or floral leaves.
Gift alone, or add a fun Ghiradelli Advent to the gift for the ultimate chocolate gift.
I once made 200 of them for my nieces Quinceanera. Her theme was a Winter Wonderland. I used silver Hershey Kisses with blue cellophane, white silk leaves and white floral tape.
The tutorial is more about Valentine’s Day so we will be using red glitter tulle and red foil-wrapped Hershey Kisses.
These Hershey Kisses Roses are economical and combine the gifts of chocolate and roses into one. In 2011, the average Valentine’s Day price for a dozen florist-arranged, long-stemmed roses in the United States is just above $73, according to the Society of American Florists. At other times of the year, it’s just more than $59.
We spent a little less than $11 on all the supplies and it should yield about 22 roses–about 50-cents each.
How to Make a Hershey Kiss Rose Supplies List:
- HERSHEY’S KISSES Brand Chocolates or HUGS Chocolates, red foils
- Florist tape
- Artificial leaves (optional)–we used green ribbon
- Florist wire–20 gauge works best
- Clear cellophane, plastic wrap or we used red, glitter tulle
How to Make a Hershey Kiss Rose Instructions:
Wrap the two Hershey Kisses in Tulle (or cellophane)–you’ll need about a 4″ square.
Using the florist tape secure the tulle (or cellophane) over the Hershey Kisses. This will give you a rose bud.
Place the florist wire against the florist tape that secures the tulle.
Starting at the bottom of rose, wrap florist tape around edges of wire and the bud’s florist tape–continuing down the full length of wire with tape.
Add 1 or 2 artificial leaves, if desired–or we used ribbon and folded it in half to make a loop.
Place leaf or ribbon against wire where you want and secure in place with florist tape, as you twist the florist tape down the wire.
Continue wrapping floral tape down the wire until the “stem” is the length you want. Then, using wire cutters, trim the wire.
You have now completed your Hershey Kisses Rose! Continue these steps to build a bouquet and arrange in a box or vase.
