Creative ways to preserve red roses
Who says your Valentine’s Day flowers can’t be enjoyed beyond February 14? Keep the gift lasting for longer and try these creative techniques to preserve red roses (or any flower):
- Press: Place the flowers in some absorbent paper and put within the pages of a big, heavy book. Gently press down on the flowers.
- Soak: Using glycerin to draw out the water and moisture, soak the flowers in the substance to ensure they stay looking fresh.
- Sand: Put the flowers in a bowl of sand and wait until all the moisture has been drained.
- Air-dry: Wrap the stems of your flowers together with rubber bands and hang them upside down on a hook.
