Now that you've cleaned your roses and got them ready to put in water, you're going to
want to wire them. Wiring them will hold the head up because you're going to want these
to last for about seven days. This just helps because the weight of the bud of the flower
can get a little bit heavy after about five days so it'll start to kind of, we call it
bent neck, it will kind of droop. So, in order to prevent that you're going to wire the rose.
Now, you take twenty two gauge florist wire and we only need about half of this length.
We're just going to want to go down about half the stem. So, I'm just going to cut these
wires in half. So, we cut them and then, you take the wire and you go right underneath
the head of the rose. There's one little part, here, I'll move this so you can see, you're
just going to want to pierce that part of the rose and just put the wire in ever so
slightly, just until you feel it go through the petals. Then, you're going to take the
wire and very close to the wire, you're going to turn the flower around and wrap it with
the wire. When you get towards the bottom you're just going to take this part of the
wire and push it up. And that's how you wire a rose.
