Everything Is Coming Up Roses!

Valentine's Day is coming up in just over a month. The first thing people think of when they think Valentine's Day is Roses! Bitter Creek has roses, Wood Roses & ours won't wilt or die in a few days!

This simple project can be a single rose or a dozen or any number in between! You can place them in a vase, arrange them in a florists box or just give a basic bouquet or a single rose to your Valentine!

This is a simple project that takes little time and the impression they make is lasting, literally!

Our delicate, hand crafted Wood Roses look very realistic, and last forever! Never worry about your beautiful roses wilting again. These make great keepsakes and gifts that will last much longer than real cut flowers. Available at Bitter Creek North in a great selection of over 20 gorgeous colors to match any d├ęcor!

Lightly mist the wood flowers with fragrance oils mixed with our Reed Diffuser Base in a spray bottle to scent. Be careful not to overly saturate the petals as they can fall apart if too much fragrance oil is used. Spray evenly with a fine mist so as not to leave visible oil spots. Be aware that some fragrance oils may cause discoloration, so we recommend testing each fragrance on a single flower before making a large batch.
Do not dip or submerge the flower in fragrance oil!

Sell refresher mist in a 1 or 2 oz spray bottle or in a glass dropper bottle for customers to freshen their flowers! Great for table centerpieces. Use wire cutters to cut stems to varying
lengths and add silk leaves to create your own floral arrangement. Wrap a dozen long stemmed Wood Roses with some dried baby’s breath in clear cellophane tied with a sheer ribbon for a romantic bouquet. Mix several colors or just one single color to create a stunning bouquet. Single roses sell great in bars… why not sell scented wood roses that will leave a longer lasting impression (wrap a blank white label around the stem for those who want to write a note or give their number)!

Petals are hand crafted of birch wood and are finished with green silk leaves and a 13” long bendable green stem. Available in bunches of 8 closed bud roses.

We’ve seen crafters sell scented wood roses for $1 to $2 a piece, or an average of $18.00 per dozen. Great profit item!
