12 Days of DIY Christmas Ornaments- Day 11: Dried Flower Ornament
I love when my guy surprises me with flowers, but I hate that after a few days, they die. I always dry my flowers out because I hate the idea of just getting a gift and throwing it out a few days later. The problem is- it’s delicate and you wind up having dried out petals around your house that you end up vacuuming anyways. Seems like a waste, right? Not anymore!
- Dried out flowers
- Craft Ornament
Sweetest’s Day happened to fall during Cubs Postseason so it gave Mike an excuse to buy me red and blue flowers. We had such a fun time watching all of the Cubs games together, I wanted to preserve the flowers to remind me of it.
1. Dry out your flowers- either hang upside down or lay flat on paper towels. Let dry out for several weeks until crunchy.
2. When ready to create, open the cap of your craft ornament and stick funnel inside
3. Pick petals off of dried out flowers and sprinkle them into the funnel
4. Fill ornament completed with dried out flower petals
Never let flowers go to waste- turn them into your very own ornament to reminisce over every year.
