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 tutorial that we are featuring for you below.
We love her waxed flower nest and the succulent display above. As you can see, you are limited only by your imagination.
