That’s such a good idea, I have my bouquet displayed on a shelf over our sofa and I always wondered how I can keep it dust free! I usually spray dried flowers with hairspray, but that doesn’t really work for long! :/ I hope it’s okay to steal your idea!?

I used a craft store football case for mine too 🙂 I unfortunately didn’t do any research before the wedding about preserving it, and we left pretty abruptly for the honeymoon, so I let my bouquet dry au naturale. (Basically I did your method #5!) It looks okay 10 months later – the roses turned out fine, the daisies are okay, but the hydrangeas look kinda crappy. They were green but are now brown and shrivvely. Luckily they kinda shrunk back into the body of the bouquet so they don’t stand out much.
