Flowers Ideal for drying and crafts

Flowers Ideal for drying and crafts

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:

  • Strawflowers
  • China Asters
  • Larkspur
  • Celosia
  • Bunny Tails
  • Bee Balm
  • Yarrow
  • Yellow Ball Craspedia
  • Frosted explosion
  • Globe Amaranth
  • Statice
  • Hydrangeas
  • Dusty Miller
  • Helipterum
  • Eucalyptus
  • Chamomile
  • Nigella Seed Pods

Many people also dry ranunculus, daffodils and dahlias, but I haven’t had any luck with them yet.
