How do you dry flowers?


Answer by  mapsbn (25)

Drying flowers is easy if you have the right flowers. Hydrangeas are a great one that dries easily. A dry dark place is best, usually a closet. You can tie the end and hang them upside down which is the preferred method or you can lay them out. Allow to dry 2 to 3 weeks. Spray with an acrylic spray.

One way to dry flowers is to hang the flowers upside down on a wall for a few days. You can also dry flowers by wrapping them in a few sheets of tissue paper, and placing them between the pages of a heavy book. This will both press and dry the flowers.

First you should strip any excess leaves from stem. Rubber band bunches of stems together and, with dental floss (works great) secure them to a hanger. Place in a dark dry area for at least 2-3 weeks until completely dry. Spray them with a little hairspray for extra protection and your ready to hang them around the house.

My grandmother taught me to dry flowers by hanging them upside down above the water boiler - it's warm and surprisingly dry there because of the nature of the boiler (using a flame). Any dry, warm place would do for this purpose. It is not the best way to do it but it works for those without equipment.
