Preserve Fresh Flowers for Craft Projects
When our gardens are in full bloom, we often wish that they would stay around forever. Why not preserve some of the magnificent displays of fresh flowers so that you can incorporate them into a wide variety of craft and art projects for many years ahead.
Pick flowers that can lay somewhat flat for best results. Some of our favorites include daisies, cherry blossoms, mums, pansies, violets, gerbera daisies and more. Once the drying process is complete, store the dried masterpieces in sealed plastic containers or carefully placed ziplock bags. Use the dried flowers to accent wreaths, make homemade notecards, lay on display under glass, or simply to decorate your artwork.
