Most often, rose petals are used in cooking and cosmetics. But for such purposes, we recommend using your own grown flowers.
Plants for business undergo special treatment, due to which they lose their beneficial properties. But you can still use the petals effectively. Create a decoration or piece of furniture. There are techniques in which the flower is not completely decomposed into petals to form a new shape, and the petals themselves become “bricks” for the new creation. You can make a lot of ordinary roses and petals, just let your imagination run wild.
A recipe for an unusual bouquet of dry rose petals.
Rose inflorescences are disassembled into separate components. Each petal is strung on a decorative thread or wire, and in this form it is dried suspended in a dark, ventilated place. After a week, you get beautiful garlands of dark shades. It can be used as decoration for interior decoration. If you add a little varnish, the colors will become more vivid, as if they were splashed with water. The next step is to create a wire structure on which one need to place the garlands. And the whole process ends with assembling the bouquet. Fresh flowers harmonize perfectly with dry material. The buds of fresh roses, alstroemeria, asters, cloves are erected between the dry petals, leaving room for reflection. In the interior, the obtained decorative elements can be used to decorate home compositions and gifts.
What girl does not dream of a romantic photo shoot in a boat decorated with flowers. Red is the color of love. It is not easy to correctly convey shades of red, so that it is not banal, does not merge into one common mass. In large works, additional colors are needed to help distinguish the details of the main tone. The basis of the entire structure were twisting willow twigs dyed black. Plagues of gold-dyed hops and light fluff clematis serve as a background for a palette of red rose, carnation, and dahlia. The dusty pink “Vallet” alstroemeria harmonizes with the model’s skin tone. A very small amount of the Princess series asters adds crimson depth. Garlands of live and dry rose petals “Black Magic” produce a variety of reds with black shades. A model in a velvet dress is a better option. It remains to be hoped that our heroes will be happy.

Some words form him: “I have this condition. It’s probably Inspiration. It is sticky. He has been haunting me since childhood. Little Petya tried to make something out of the plants, but nothing came of it. Anger arose at me and I even cried why it was impossible to do what came from above. I remember cutting a boat out of a board and someone told me in my head: that’s not it. However, I learned to express my inner world with plants. Now I understand the madness of writers, artists.”
