Today you will learn how to preserve Roses with wax. It is a very easy process and at the 4-week mark they are still going strong!

4 months later, they had taken on a very rustic look that you can use in vases, picture frames and for decorations.

You may ask yourself how you can display your wax roses and use them in a unique way. Julie from 1800 Flowers has some simple suggestions and she is the creator behind the video that we are featuring below.
