I know that some of you were curious as to how long the flowers that we waxed a few week ago would last on my How to Preserve Flowers with Wax blog post, so I thought I would share an update. This shot was taken almost 4 weeks to the day after I dipped each of the fresh fully-bloomed roses in melted soy wax. Isn’t it so amazingly gorgeous – still!

I took this next photo 4 MONTHS after I waxed the roses, and they are still beautiful, just with a more rustic feel.

Why don’t you try it with a few of the beautiful flowers currently filling your home this post-Valentine’s week! Watch our quick how-to video or click here for step-by-step instructions and have fun with it!
