How to dry rose petals the lazy way

My dear husband gave me some pretty white-pinkish roses for Valentines Day and as they were starting to wilt I figured it would be a waste to just throw them out. So why not dry them! My usual method of drying involved bundling the flowers and hang them upside down over a radiator. I used to do this quite a lot when I was a teenager but I have lost the patience to do so (Also I don’t have a suitable radiator in my current house anymore)

I looked around for a faster method and stumbled upon a few options:

Option 1: Place petals on a flat surface in a warm environment with lots of ventilation and leave for a loooooong time.
No. Not an option if you have a hyperactive 4 year old running around and destroying everything in his path.

Option 2: Dry them using an oven. Place rose petals on an oventray and put them in the oven on 200 degrees while leaving the oven door open.
Still takes too long for me so I found another method:

Option 3: Nuke the fuckers. The microwave, Now let me tell you, I was a bit skeptic about this. I mean, rose petals in the microwave? I don’t know man. But hey, they said on the internet that it would take only a minute. Not too bad,so I tried it.

I placed the petals on a plate covered in kitchen paper, making sure that the petals were not touching each other. I place the plate in the microwave and blasted them for a minute an a half. They were not completely dry yet so I nuked them for another minute. The came out perfectly dry.
You want them to be crunchy, like potato chips, if they are still bendy, there’s still some moisture left in them.

 After they’re nuked till crispy I placed them on a baking tray to dry for another 48 hours before storing them in an airtight container (I placed the tray on top of a closet and out of sight from my dear little monster child)

^ This is the result of me being an impatient little shit.
I put the 2nd batch of petals in the microwave for a full 3,5 minutes because, hey, maybe it’s faster than checking on them every 30 seconds…
Burnt the everloving fuck out of the poor things.
So be patient.

Tah-daah. Finished. 
The pot I used is a glass airtight pot that used to hold instant coffee. The only reason I drink instant coffee is because of the pretty pots like this one, I’m building up quite a collection of them. They’re very useful to store various stuff in

Anyway, I hope this was useful!
I’ll make a new post about what to do with them once I figure it out myself :)

Sooo, @cupidoago asked me if I could explain how I made my sleep circle and I’d be happy to share!

I started with a green Styrofoam wreath base and glued on some pieces of paper with sleeping related sigils on them.
Then, I took the thick ribbon and cut 3 even lengths, checking that the length doesn’t make it hang too low to the bed. I wrapped the ends around the base and hot glued them into place. Then I brought all the ends together and hot glued those.
Then I used some fake vines and wrapped them around the base. Same with a vine with the white flowers on it. I stuffed the ends into the Styrofoam and hot glued them in place. Then I kinda moved them around and made them look neater.
Then, I took 6 fake hanging wisteria blossoms and jammed them into the Styrofoam and hot glued them in.
Now, the witchy part, I have 4 sachet spells (good sleep, no nightmares, strong relationship, no anxiety dreams), viles of herbs (black salt, sea salt, fire salt, 3 with lavender, thyme, catnip, jasmine, chamomile), and I have a stick of Selenite and a clear quartz point tied up there too! I just attached all of that with lengths of ribbon tied to the vines or around the base.
If any of that didn’t make sense, please let me know! I hope it was helpful and if you decide to make one please tag me if you post pictures!!
