Drying Flowers: A DIY Project You Can Do In Your Garage
September 16, 2021
Greens and multiple colors that adorn the house are always welcoming sights. But the problem is that the flowers won't last a week and they will wither into gloomy wilted browns. And off they go to the trash bins. Then, we replace them with freshly picked flowers from our own gardens or bought from the neighboring flower shop. But how about the flowers that were given by your significant other on your first date, first anniversary, or even the accept-my-apology kind of bouquet, which holds sentimental value? Should you just take a photo for a keepsake then if it withers again, you have no choice but to throw it? Or seasonal flowers that you want to display in the house all year round, should you wait for spring again? There is a simple solution to that--learn how to dry flowers in your own garage! Drying flowers is easier than you may think. And you won’t be needing too many materials to achieve the rustic aesthetic that you are looking for. The quaint look of the blooms will be a conversation starter for when entertaining guests. It also adds character to your living space, and at the same time serves as a tangible reminder of a memory that holds a special place in your heart. Before this gets too cheesy as I list down all the reasons dried flowers bring in your home, let me start with the step-by-step guides and methods that you can use to preserve flowers.
