Things You Can Do With Dried Flowers

Dried Flowers
  1. Seasonal f arrangements - in vases or baskets, these last years if properly stored.
  2. Make a wreath - use grapevine, styrofoam or wire as wreath back. Attach to backing with glue and wire, combine with leaves, ribbon, etc. Wreath ideas here.
  3. Swags / Wall decorations - hang over doorways, above shelves. (Old hangars can be used as backing, cut and bend to almost any shape desired.)
  4. Decorate a mirror - wouldn't you like to see your face always framed by Flowers?
  5. Decorate baskets with Flowers, leaves and ribbon - glue f heads to handle and around rim. Fill basket with tidbits for great gifts, such as soaps, bath salts, home made candies, etc.
  6. Decorate hats - combine with ribbon.
  7. Medieval f garland headbands. Baby's breath or Queen Anne's Lace works best.
  8. Make a Victorian "posy" - wrap in lace doily. Personalize gifts by using specific Flowers for each person.
  9. Make a Lavender "wand"
  10. Window dressing - spray paint or spray varnish Flowers and secure to corners of curtain rods, etc.
