How to Create Romantic Chocolate Roses: A Special Valentine’s Day Treat That Keeps on Giving
This is a wonderful creative nature craft. A chocolate rose keep sake is a gift that keeps on giving after the Valentine’s Day holiday is over. Place this eternal beauty in a bud vase for your viewing pleasure.
Silk wired leaves
Gold pipe cleaners
Red plastic wrap
Pull out four inches of wrap, cut in half so you have about a four by four square. Place two kisses flat end back to back to make the rosebud. Pull and cover the bud with the wrap. Tape up any loose ends. Cut floral wire into six inch length stems. Push end of wire into chocolate rose bud until it can not go in any further. Make a slight cure in the wire leaves. Place one leaf near rosebud and wrap the thin rose wire down the wire rose stem. Take the second leaf and place it an inch below the first leaf on the opposite side. Wrap the wire around the stem. Cut off about eight inches of floral tape. Starting at the top, cover the wires and stem with floral tape. Starting from the top of the stem, wrap the gold pipe cleaner around the rose stem.
This rose never needs watering, and will never die! Enjoy and happy holiday!
