Valentine's Day Roses Inspiration

Did you get some beautiful roses on Valentine's Day?
My husband surprised me with this 2 dozen lovely mixed assortment :) Pinks, yellows, and white! LOVE!

I feel a little guilty after tossing my wedding bouquet, okay not really. Honestly I just did not know what to do with it. I know I know PINTEREST is filled with hoarding every single item from your wedding and then decorating your entire house with it....including your dead flowers bouquet. Don't get me wrong, I loved my wedding, but framing your wedding dress, invites, pictures, guest book, marriage license, wedding song lyrics, and so on is toooo much.
Anyway this years roses seem too beautiful to toss and I started to look around for possible uses for them that did not scream "wedding"
Here's what I came up with....

Shadow Boxes:



I'm loving this idea and I think I may recreate the last one!

I do not typically like the look of dried flower arrangements. They usually look like something from an early 1990's country theme home (you know the kind with ducks and baskets everywhere).
Also they can collect dust and are hard to clean.
Crafters tip: Hair Spray can help battle that dust (HERE)  
Either way I do like this colorful design above! It's modern and fresh.

This is so easy and inexpensive to do! Using apothecary jars, mason, or any other glass container with a lid is a great way to display your roses and best part no worry about dust :) Start with a big jar and add to it each year!

Old wine bottle + dried roses + diffusers! Creative and easy :)

Petal Project:

Instead of the whole flower, use the pedals to create shapes like this heart above.

If you have never done it before, it's super easy. I always have done the hang upside down in the basement (dark and out of the way).
