Any ideas on how to display 1 dried rose?

by Julie
I have 1 long stemmed rose from a bouquet. It's dried out & I would like to permanently display it. It would have to be totally enclosed so that I don't lose any of the petals. Thanks for any ideas you can give me.

    Do you have a frame perhaps?

    I would also put it in a frame, so air cannot get to it.

    Depending on the shape, you could put it in a small bowl or cup and cover it with resin to turn it into a paperweight.

    How about a small shadow box with a crochet doily or a piece of lace fixed to the backing or a pretty piece of scrap paper or fabric? There are several tutorials on how to dip dried flowers in wax to preserve as well. You could do both?

      That's a great idea. I have some old doilies that would work. Thanks Lindy.

    I used to own a Flower shop and dried flowers are as delicate as they are beautiful. I always recommended that you place the flower in a deep matted frame with a glass front. You can hot glue it to the back but if you want it untouched purchase a mini vase and glue it to the bottom of the frame or tie a delicate ribbon or raffia bow around the stem and hot glue the ribbon to the back of the frame. This will protect your delicate flower for years! The display frames are available at any craft store.

    A friend placed dried roses from her Mom's funeral in clear acrylic ornaments (round ball-type that come apart for filling. She placed one rose and some of the greenery in each, then tied a ribbon around the neck, and gave one to each family member. She hung them on an ornament hanger that sits on a table. Everything is available from the craft store.
