What's the best way to dry flowers at home?  

Here we share our top tips for drying your own flowers at home! You may have had a bouquet that you want to dry, your wedding flowers or even have picked some wildflowers on a walk - here are some tips to dry them like a professional!

* Strip out any very wet stems from the bouquet or bunch as these will hinder the drying process

* Tie the bunch with a long piece of twine and leave the ends loose

* Hang the bunch upside down from a rafter, rail or hook up high eg. on the ceiling or wall or garage and tie with the twine

* Choose a cool, dark, dry place that does not get humid ( humidity will hinder the process and damage the flowers) 

* Make sure no creatures such as bugs, mice or possums can access them - they make a very tasty meal! 

* Leave for ideally 3 weeks

Once dry they can be used in a vase ( no water ) or a wreath or any number or art project!
