Preserve the season’s beauty with a wreath made from dried flowers, grasses, herbs and more.
|Wreath of Hydrangea, 'Pinky Winky'|
The season’s floral beauty need not be fleeting. Wreaths fashioned from preserved annuals and perennials capture the magic of sun-dried fields. Equipment is simple and inexpensive: scissors, thin wire and a form for the wreath are essential, but a garden is not. Flowers for drying may be obtained from country fairs, neighbors or roadside stands. Mail-order companies offer dried herbs and everlastings, as well as complete kits.
Ask about wreath-making workshops at your favorite nursery, garden center or community college. Have you made a wreath from dried flowers?
