Dried flower wreaths, Christmas ornaments, gift toppers, bouquets those are just a few things you can create using dried flowers.
During the spring and summer I grab a few bunches of unused flowers and hang them upside down in a darkish corner of the shop to dry.
Drying flowers requires good airflow, a dry area and darkness as the colors of the petals are really prone to fading.
Here is a list of flowers and grasses that you can dry:
- China Asters
- Bunny Tails
- Bee Balm
- Yellow Ball Craspedia
- Frosted explosion
- Globe Amaranth
- Dusty Miller
- Nigella Seed Pods
Many people also dry ranunculus, daffodils and dahlias, but I haven’t had any luck with them yet.
