If you've received a beautiful bunch of roses and after a while it is not that fresh anymore why not dry it and make a perfect dry flower arrangement.
All you need for this dry flower arrangement is:
- dry flowers
- floral foam
- hair spray
First you have to let your flowers dry, hang each bundle upside down by their stems, it will keep the flowers and leaves in an upward position as they dry. You probably have to leave them like that for a week or even longer. That's the longest part of the project
To preserve your dried flowers use hair spray. Mist each dried flower and let it dry well before you use them in the arrangement.
Next, cut the stems short
Once you have your floral foam and stems ready, start arranging the flowers
The best way is to put them in the middle first and then work around it
If you look at the picture below, it looks pretty good and you can just put a nice matching ribbon to cover the foam, or you can keep going putting more flowers around it to make it look like it's a flower ball
Once you done, the only thing now is to find a perfect place to display your dry flower arrangement.
