Dry flowers, everlastings, what ever you want to call them they are making a come back and I AM EXCASTIC! I don’t know why I love dried blooms so much, but husband think I like to have them hanging around because it feels a little witchy (this may be a fair observation – thank you Practical Magic and the lady who owns Sugarfoot on Heartland). Whatever the reason, I love them and quite a few of you do to.
They are surprisingly versatile; bouquets, wreaths, accents, flower confetti, garlands, even as florals for weddings. I played around with a few creations this fall and It’s hard to pick a favorite but I REALLY like the accented pumpkins!
In 2020 I have added additional varieties for drying and plan to drastically increase the number of strawflowers I grow; they are just fantastic fresh or dry!
Below are some great resources and tutorials I have found using everlasting flowers, happy crafting!
