Glue dried roses onto form and fill in with celosia and berries. Top dress with Baby’s Breath. Insert a wire hook in the back for hanging.

The roses were the last autumn blooms on my husband’s Daybreak rose bush. They have been hanging in our country kitchen drying, just waiting for me to use them in a variety of projects. This year it is a romantic dried rose wreath for Valentine’s Day–Roses in Winter!
