Air Drying

Air drying is by far the easiest and cheapest method of drying flowers including roses. It is simple; all you have to do is follow these simple instructions.

1. Start with perfect and unflawed roses on their stems. If the roses are not in perfect condition, they will wither and the petals will fall off.

2. Remove any leaves that may be on the branches.

3. Bunch them up together in a manner that lets them fan out.

4. Tie the bottom with string or a rubber band.

5. Hang them upside down in a dark, dry place for two to three weeks to be certain that they are completely dry.
