Drying and Using FlowersThegardenia , lily and peony make up delicate bouquets that can last a long time. Dried flowers bring a rustic style to decoration; a dried flower bouquet is the perfect opportunity to combine a country style with white and brown tones. To dry the bouquet , remove the wrapping and tie the stems using a string. Hang it upside down and leave it for a few days in a dark environment where it does not receive sunlight.
In addition to using the entire bouquet for decoration, you can use the petals of daisies , gardenias , daffodils , and any other flowers to make other decorative items, such as pictures and bookmarks.
Details with pressed flowersIn addition to drying the flower bouquets , you can press the petals of lilies , carnations and tulips to use them in your decoration projects. To press the flowers, you have to place them inside a vegetable paper inside a book with a lot of weight on it. After a few months, you'll have perfectly smooth flowers that you can use to create decorative objects, such as those suggested below:
- Candles: You can use wrapping paper and a hair dryer to attach peonies , bungavillas and dried gardenias to a candle. In this process, the wax melts from the heat and acts as a glue for the flower to adhere to the surface.
- Paper: If you enjoy making your own recycled paper, just follow the same technique and add daisy petals, carnations and tulips to the process.
- Potpourri: Use petals of aromatic bouquets to make potpourri and perfume every corner of your home.
You can place it in transparent jars or bags and decorate your rooms with this mixture.
