2. Start assembling the rose, simply using thread to keep the bottoms of the petals together. Do not cut it from the spool until you're finished. This is my own method, you could also use florist's tape instead of thread.
4. To age the rose, soak it in a cold mixture of coffee, cinnamon and other ingredients that stain, you can easily find in your kitchen. Just experiment to find the 'magic recipe' that works for you! It might be necessary to wash a bit of the color off, for a more natural look.
5. Bake at medium heat for about 15 minutes. Always, always keep an eye on your work when it's in the oven!
6. With adhesive paper tape, attach the rose on a common wooden stick. Twist the tape very firmly.
8. With the help of a skewer stick, turn the edges of the petals downwards, to conphere a natural look to the flower.
