Just an Idea For You
Wednesday, December 3, 2008
I just love the old pop crates--any old box actually--always grabs my attention!
I have filled a couple of them with dried flowers for decor in my home.
First, fill with Spanish Moss, then the drieds--you can't go wrong!
All the books and magazines will tell you to pick flowers at their peak to hang and dry----I say enjoy the flowers in a bouquet or in your garden until they start to wilt then hang to dry--but I like to get the most bang for anything! Really, I've hung some almost dead flowers--and once their dry you can't tell! Especially roses, their heads can be drooping-just hang them upside down and when they are dry, I think they're beautiful.
Ask friends if you can have any of their flowers when they are ready to toss them, and before long you'll have enough to fill a box!
These are just dried grasses from our place (not the garden)! Try anything, you have nothing to lose. I've had weeds that have dried beautifully.
