how do you make a nice dried flower bouquet from fresh flowers?

If you want to keep your bouquet "together"just tie a tie wrap or string on the bottom of the bouquet.Hang them upside down in a dry place.Spray some hairspray or even better some clearcoat varnish in a spray can all over the flowers,leaves n all.They will become stiff alittle and dry out in a couple of days.This is how i do my arrangements from the flowers i get from my garden for many years.:)

i sprayed my flowers with hair spray for more than a week. and the color is still so fresh (especially the forget-me-nots, bright purple!) how long will it take for them to dry? i hang them upside down in my bedroom, where at night, i will on the aircon. does this affect the flowers to dry slower than normal temperature?

Hi!Are they still damp?They shouldnt be.The air conditioner is making them to dry slow.They need dry air.The best place to dry flowers are by a furnace or a sorce of heat.I would take a hairdryer and dry them with the heat on low.This should help them to become dryer faster or even dry when your done blowdrying.Especially if they are damp or have moisture on the blooms.P.S...Dont dry close because the petals might fall aprt.Try it.:):)
