Leftover Blooms. - A Tiny Traveler

Leftover Blooms.

8:30 AM

Good morning friends!
Today I am going to be sharing some fun ideas with you all of what to do with your leftover flowers from the Valentine's Day weekend (or any leftover flowers, really).

My favorite thing to do with flowers after they've been in a vase for a few days is pick out my favorite blossoms and dry them. It's very simple. All you need is a paper towel, string or a ribber band, and a thumb tack.

Pick your favorite blossoms from the bunch and dry the stems off with a paper towel. Next, wrap the stems close to the base with the rubber band or string. Then place a tack in the wall where you want to hang them and slide the rubber band/string over the tack, making sure everything is secure.

I hung mine next to my bed so I can see them every morning. 
What's one way that you preserve flowers?

  1. My husband's grandfather just passed away so we have a lot of flowers around right now. I was just thinking tonight that I need to do something with them since they are starting to lose their luster a bit. You have great timing!

  2. This is a great idea, and they make a cute decoration! I would also love to try pressing flowers sometime - I've seen some really cool fake flower "tattoos" using pressed flowers and vaseline! Thanks for sharing. <3

  3. Beautiful flowers! I really need to start drying my flowers.

  4. That is such an amazing idea :)

  5. I'm so sorry about your grandfather :( I hope that the flowers last a long time after you hang them to dry out!

  6. I just saw something about vaseline and pressed flower tattoos! SO neat! I'll have to try that too.

  7. Yes! My husband bought me flowers for my birthday and I desperately wanted to show him how much I appreciated them by drying them and keeping them. I did something similar by tying them hanging them upside down, but I put them outside and we just go a ton of rain. Now I don't think they will last.

  8. Aw that stinks :/ Definitely try again next time! They make for great decor!
