The gift of a bouquet of roses can mean so much. It can commemorate a special time or occasion, but everyone knows that these beautiful fragrant flowers don't last long. Within days, they begin to wilt and within a week, petals begin to fall, leaving a droopy reminder of former beauty. If this bouquet was a special one, you might want to save it. By drying it, you can keep it for many years to come.
Remove the flowers from the vase or water source they were in.
Dry off the stems pressing a paper towel to them to absorb the excess moisture.
Tie a string around the stems tightly to hold them in place. Leave enough excess string to hang the bouquet with.
Hang the bouquet upside down.
Take the bouquet down when the flowers are completely dry. This could take up to a week.
