DIY: How to Make Rose Petal Beads from Your Valentine’s Day Bouquets https://t.co/otMQqncIqJ

This is beautiful! I have started making beads out of rose petals. I have access to a ton of roses at the college, so I get that for free! I have taken the petals and chopped them up in a blender and then dried them. I then regrind them to get a smaller particle size for a smooth rose dough. Tonight, I took a large batch that I had cooked down in my crock pot and put it in my cast iron pan. I cooked it with hopes it would darken further. I was not disappointed. It is a deep, velvety dark rose-brown. Elegant color! We all have hobbies. My cousin makes awesome quilts. I am obsessed with roses, and I craft with them. This is one of the items that a person can make. Making memorial beads for someone and putting them in a necklace or bracelet is a very kind thing to do. Rose bead jewelry is quite expensive. It is sought after. I love it!
