Whenever I'm given fresh flowers as a gift I'm always saddened that they rarely last more than a week.
In an effort to preserve the flowers my hubby gave me I decided to make a fresh rose garland so I could enjoy them longer.
When the roses were almost fully opened and getting a bit droopy I followed these instructions.
I had the garland made in about 10 minutes and up and hung in about 15.
Now that they've started to dry it looks more like this
Not as vibrant but still quite pretty and charming.
Plus now I get to enjoy them longer : )
