How do I preserve a rose that is very special to me?
Have glass container that has a shape of a pyramid and hang the rose inside by having a hook on the top of the pyramid. Have the rose hanging inside just about 1/3 off the container.
Reply:umm i would press it in a book! ....did it with my prom corsage and it looks sweet!
Reply:tie some string to the bottom of it, hang it upside down in a dry place, and in a week or so it should be dried enough to take down. It will be fragile, so be careful. Good luck!
Reply:well.. if u want it to live like REALLY long, u should ask like a florist or something maybe theres a way for them to last long.. but i think u shud just let it die naturally if u want to save it u can like clip it in a book or frame it or photoalbum..
Reply:there is something u can spray on them it's like a accrilic look in an arts and crafts store its a process of drying and the spray keeps it in that shape
Reply:i would freeze it by dipping it in liquid nitrogen but thats just me
Reply:Place them in a box of silica (craft store) following directions, or you can hang upside down until air dried.

You can then coat them with preservative (craft store) and I would suggest you put them in some type of enclosed container like a glass dome - sort of like the ones you put expensive dolls under)

Also there are companies that will treat them for permanent display - check with bridal/floral stores or on the web
Reply:I have a rose from my grandfather's funeral in 1994. All I did was put it in a bible and let it stay there, it dried out it was pressed but easier to store in a keepsake box it hasn't crumbled or anything.
