Preserving Flowers for Crafting

Potpourri  Preserving the Floral Harvest

Drying Flowers with a homemade desiccating powder


Mix together in a shoebox:

2 cups corn meal
1 cup borax laundry booster

Select flower blooms (to dry) and…
in the shoebox, bury the blooms in the drying mixture, taking care they are not touching.

Depending upon size, the flowers will dry within a few days.

Store covered, until plant materials are thoroughly dried.
