These roses will look fresh for months, because they were freeze-dried in full bloom. Order a couple from a florist or source them online. The blossoms typically come without stems, so we poked green floral wire into the bottom of each to make them, and secured and covered it with matching floral tape, then arrange. #marthastewart #crafts #diyideas #easycrafts #tutorials #hobby

Floral-print linen can elevate a standard terra-cotta pot. To add fresh petals, simply slip a peak-season hyacinth or tulips (in their original vessel) inside. If you want to repot the blooms in the pretty container, leave the saucer fabric-free for watering. #marthastewart #crafts #diyideas #easycrafts #tutorials #hobby

To brighten someone's table, "arrange" pressed blooms and découpage them onto a tray. The trick to nailing a 2-D bunch that's lush yet composed is to place the flowers first, then pick them up one at a time, brush the backs gently with craft glue from the centers out. Add a trailing ribbon, and protect your work with several coats of découpage glue or clear resin on top. #marthastewart #crafts #diyideas #easycrafts #tutorials #hobby

Finish with several allover protective coats. #marthastewart #crafts #diyideas #easycrafts #tutorials #hobby
