  • 12 slices of bacon, thick or thin cut or any combination of the two
    12 toothpicks
    A baking sheet fitted with a cooling rack
    12 wooden or bamboo kabob skewers
    A green food coloring pen
    Green construction paper
    Scissors
    Glue
    Something for the "vase" such as a beer koozie

  • Preheat your oven to 375ºF. Use the convection setting if you have it.
    Place a metal cooling rack over a rimmed baking sheet.
    Roll up each strip of bacon so it resembles a rose. Secure with a toothpick.

  • Arrange bacon roses on cooling rack with the fattier side on the bottom. Push down on them a bit if necessary so they don't wobble. The toothpick can also double as a kick stand. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until well cooked. Be careful not to burn your roses, but get them crispy outside.

  • While the roses cook you can prepare the stems. Using a food coloring pen, color the kabob skewers green. Cut them to length if necessary, or just leave them "long stemmed."

  • Cut leaves out of construction paper and glue to the stems, leaving enough room for the bacon to fit at the pointy end. Folding the paper in half first helps you get that symmetrical look and adds a nice crease to the leaves. Allow enough time for the glue to dry before assembling them.

  • Let the bacon to cool enough to handle. Remove the toothpick. Giving them a little twist as you pull them out helps prevent damage to your roses. Impale the roses on your finished stems. Arrange in whatever receptacle you've decided to use for a vase.
