How to Make Baby Blue Roses

  • Cut or buy long stemmed white roses.

  • Half fill a vase with water. Add a few drops of blue food coloring to the water. The amount of food coloring you add will determine the shade of blue you get. Start with just a few drops unless you know that you want dark blue roses.

  • Crush the bottom half inch of each stem so that they will absorb the blue water more easily. You can do this by laying the stem on a cutting board and tapping it with a hammer.

  • Set the roses into the water for at least 8 hours. Once they are the shade of blue you wanted, take them out and dry the stems with a paper towel.
