    Drying flowers

    Advertisements
    I want to save a few of the flowers from the bouquet I got this week. What would you ladies say is the best save to save them? I want to dry them not press them.

    Hang them upside down to dry then they preserve better

    Also spray hair-spray on them...I really don't know if it makes any difference, but it's just a "trick" someone told me once, so I've always done it.

    yes hang them upside down and then when their dry you can get a wax kit and coat them in wax. it's really cool.

    I've always tied the ribbon that came with them around them to hang them and dry them that way!

    I still have my bouquet from my wedding because I hung them upside down, tied to a hanger.
