I just stumbled upon this post by The V Spot via Centsational Girl's BOTB. I've never known how to dry flowers so that they look good. They end up looking like, well, dead flowers. Luckily, I have some hydrangeas in a mason jar on my kitchen counter. I will update you with the results!
Here's the trick:
Arrange your flowers in a vase with water. Leave them there until the water dries up. If the flowers aren't dry completely when the water is gone, add more water until they are. The flowers dry slowly and perfectly. That's easy enough!
I wonder if this method would work with other flowers. Only one way to find out!
