We were more than a little excited when we discovered that you can preserve Roses with wax to the point that you cannot tell between a fresh or waxed rose.

It is a very easy process and when we checked into how long they last, 4 weeks later they were going strong but not only that, 4 months later, they had taken on a very rustic look.

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

She has created the adorable waxed flower nest and the succulent display and they really look extremely gorgeous don’t you think.
