Roses are one of my favorite flowers. They’re so romantic and elegant and smell divine. Whenever I go to the florist I usually end up buying a bunch or two for our home or to give someone as a gift. Just last week they had a special on white roses so I ended up buying six large bunches. Go big or go home right 😀 But in my defence not all of the roses were going to go straight into a vase. I had plans to transform some of them into these Oreo dipped roses.
Isn’t it just lovely. They’re really easy to make too with this super simple tutorial. All you need is a few basic things and time to play.
What you Need to Make Oreo Dipped Roses
- Fresh cut white roses
- 2 Plastic containers (one small and one big)
- Black Ink
- Scissors or craft knife
- Plastic sheet to protect your work area
How to Make Oreo Dipped Roses
Remove all the leaves and cut the stems at an angle to create a larger surface area for the roses to absorb water. We want these babies to last at least a week 😉
Mix equal amounts of water and black ink in the small plastic container. The container should be wide and deep enough for the rose bloom to fit in.
Dip the rose bloom into the ink mixture.
Twirl it a round so the ink can settle between the petals before removing it. It’s a messy business so make sure to protect your work surface with a plastic sheet or something. Oh and probably your hands too. I still have ink stains under my finger nails 😀
Gently shake off any excess ink and fill a bigger plastic container with warm water and place the Oreo dipped roses inside.
Wait for the ink to dry, about an hour, before placing your Oreo dipped roses in a pretty vase. Add 3 tablespoons of sugar and a few drops of white vinegar to the vase to keep them fresher for longer.
Aren’t they just beautiful?
A friend of ours mentioned that they look like Oreo cookies. I have to agree. Thank you Greg, you sure have a way with words. I absolutely love that name.
Do they remind you of Oreo’s too?
Not only did we make Oreo dipped roses, we used a few more to create these multi colored versions.
