Whether you wish to freeze rose petals from your wedding, anniversary or special occasion, the process of freezing them is a popular way to memorialize your special life events. It's a simple process that does not require specialized gardening or preservation skills.
- Skill level:
Things you need
- Rose petals
- Airtight storage container (or sealable plastic bag)
- Plate or microwavable dish
- Microwave oven
Spread out the rose petals onto a plate. Place them on the countertop for three days, as drying the petals will help the freezer-preservation process. It is important that you do not let your petals come into contact with water or any moist materials while they are airing out on the counter.
Place your rose petals into a microwave oven for two minutes. The microwave helps eliminate excess moisture that will help the rose petals preserve better in the freezer.
Allow the rose petals to sit on the counter for 5 minutes to cool down.
Gently place the rose petals into an airtight container or sealable plastic bag.
Place the rose petals into the freezer. Rose petals will last in your freezer for as long as you wish to keep them there.
