Thoughts on Rearranging My Home

Two Easy Ways to Preserve Your Flowers

Drying flowers after special occasions like weddings, graduations, or other fun events is a great way to preserve memories. Keep in mind that these flowers will not last too long on their own; the earlier they are preserved, the longer they will look timeless. If you are looking for an easy way to preserve your own flowers, there are two methods you can use. The more basic method is to dry your flowers by hanging them upside down. Make sure the place you dry your flowers is not too warm, has little light, and stays dry. Once your flowers are dried, you will want to place them in a display case or shadowbox so they do not get damaged by touch. The second technique for drying flowers is to press them. If the flower is small and thin, the process will be easy; if the flower is bigger or has a distinct shape (such as a tulip or daffodil), it may be easier to just press the petals.
