I have always loved dried flowers and floral arrangements. Although I’ve only actually dried one bouquet to date (my first wedding bouquet!!) I love the idea of picking flowers at the end of summer,drying them naturally and then using them in arrangements or just to enjoy ‘au natural’ as in this beautiful photo.
Have any of you dried flowers and if so are there any tips that you have to share to make the flowers last longer, retain more color etc….? Late summer and the fall would certainly seem to be the perfect time to enjoy this lovely, free craft. And of course, the flowers can be enjoyed so much longer when they are dried. Different but still beautiful.
Here are instructions I found re: How to Air Dry Flowers
Have a great weekend! 🙂
