Here's what you need to make Bacon Roses for Dad:


Here's how to create Roses from Bacon for Dad:


To begin the How to Make Bacon Roses with Dollar Tree Supplies, gather all supplies. I purchased the grocery store generic brand one-pound package of thick-cut bacon for under seven dollars. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, wrap the cookie sheet in aluminum foil and place the wire rack on top.


Roll each strip of thick-cut bacon into a tight pinwheel. One end will form a pretty rosette pattern, and the other will look messier. Secure the end of the strip with a wooden toothpick placed near the bottom, and inserted all the way through the roll.


Secure with a second wooden toothpick inserted at the base, forming an “X” pattern. Place the roses on the wire rack, using the wooden toothpicks as stands to keep the flowers upright. Place in a preheated 375-degree oven for 30-45 minutes.


While the flowers are baking, remove the heads from two bunches of silk roses. Disassemble the petals from the plastic star-shaped base, and then insert the plastic bases back onto the flower stems. Bend the wire stems, so they are all pointing directly straight up. Gently clean the floral wire that will come in contact with the bacon roses with a damp paper towel.


Cut the floral foam in half with a serrated kitchen knife. Place both pieces of floral foam into the plastic ice bucket. Add several pieces of tissue paper between the pieces of floral foam, and then insert the two rose stems into the floral foam.


Remove the roses from the oven, and let cool on a paper towel for approximately 30 minutes. Once the roses are cool to the touch, place one flower on each floral stem. Bend the stems, if necessary, so that the roses stay in place.


To finish the How to Make Bacon Roses, download and print the FREE Bacon Tags and/or the FREE Bacon Tags for Dad (BELOW ⇓) on white cardstock. I love to color with my favorite Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Cut out the colored image, attach it to the black cardstock with an adhesive runner, and then cut out a tag shape with scissors. Punch a hole at the top of the tag with a hole punch and tie it onto the floral arrangement with baker's twine.

Upon first glance, these flowers look like real variegated roses, which are nice enough on their own, until you discover that they are in fact edible rosettes of delicious, crispy, rendered, thick-cut bacon. Basically, these roses are the gift that keeps giving. With two sets of gift tags to print and color, you can give them to your Dad, or customize the tag and give them to anyone for any occasion.

People love novelties. And people love bacon. So it makes perfect sense that people will love these bacon roses. Although, it’s undeniably more fun to receive these edible meat treats than to give them unless you get to share in the yummy results.

Handmade is super important to me because of the meaning behind the gift. Taking time to create something by hand is the ultimate of thoughtfulness and will definitely become a keepsake. Download and print these Four FREE Father’s Day Cards and create a memento for the special men in your life.
