How to Dye Roses

Want to be creative with the color of your roses?

Roses come in various colors, but there can be times when the color you want may not be available, or you just want to try something unique like a rainbow colored rose. Some florists dye roses as a last option in cases where they can not find a certain shade of rose for a wedding. It is an alternative option that is done by coloring a white rose to a desired color.

There are several way you can learn how to dye roses. Usually in a professional setting, roses are dyed by spraying them, or through absorption (allowing the rose to be saturated in the dye). The simplest, inexpensive and fun way to dye is rose is through absorption, and it only requires a few household materials which takes about 2-24 hours or may be a couple of days depending on the absorption process and the color that is being used.

Supplies needed:

A dozen white roses

A craft table

Rubber gloves, drop clothe, self healing cutting mat or cardboard, knife, plastic drinking cups of the same sizes, and a sink with a working plug.

Dye (food coloring)

Water

Spoon to mix dye

Steps:

Cut the rose stems: It is recommended to use white roses, and fresher roses work better. Cut each stem to 10 to 12 inches with a sharp knife at about a 45 degree angle to enable the stems to absorb the dye easier, and be sure to remove all the leaves from each stems. You can always fill your bouquet with greenery at the end. If you are planning on making a multi-colored rose or a rainbow rose, you will slit the steps into 2 -4 even sections at about 6 inches long.

Mixing the dye: Put on your rubber gloves, and mix the food coloring with spoon in a pitcher or bucket of water (different colors for each cup) and pour your solution in each plastic cups. Ensure that the plastic cups are sitting in a cardboard cup holder to give it a solid support.

Absorption of the dye: to create a multicolored rose, put each split end into different colored cup of dye, and watch the rose for up to 2-24 hours. The roses will begin to absorb the coloring through their petals and you will slowly see the petal change colors. Then you can feel free to remove the roses once the petals have reached your desired result. Petals may have small vein-like looking marks which look darker than the petal. You can prevent this by leaving the rose in the dye for a longer period of time. Brighter colors may take a longer time to absorb.

Remove your finished product and put it in a vase fresh water, and add some floral food. Remember to change the water every other day and trim the stems for a longer vase life. Learning how to dye a rose to single or multi-color is not as hard as people think. It is a cool experiment that both parents and kids can enjoy watching the roses change colors.
