Highlight Mother's Day, this year, with a special Chocolate Rose for each mother. Following our kids' item during the worship service, the children will be handing out these roses to every mother and lady in our church family. They are quite simple to make- see the instructions below and the slideshow of images.
MATERIALS- per rose: * 8 x 10cm circles of tissue paper. (You can use all the same colour or a mix of colours.) *1/2 length of florist wire (#20) * small chocolate * 12cm square of clear cellophane * florist tape * 50cm length of ribbon (per rose)
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Wrap the square of cellophane tightly around the chocolate and secure by twisting the end of the florist wire around the base of the chocolate. It should look like a chocolate ball on the end of a wire. 2. Holding the circles of tissue together, cut 2 small slits in the centre. 3. Gently push the wire of the chocolate and cellophane ends through the slits in the tissue circles. 4. Holding the tissue circles firmly around the chocolate, start winding the florist tape around the tissue circles, cellophane ends and wire and continue along the length of wire to the end. 5. Gently crush the tissue circles around the chocolate to give it a rose-like shape. 6. Tie a ribbon bow around the wire beneath the rose. 7. Finished.. ready to give out on Sunday!
