Preserving flowers for LIFE

Greetings LIFEers! Librarian Patsy Brautigam and ALL member Linda Gabrielson returned to teach our class about dried flowers. We learned about several different methods of drying flowers, from the classic hanging in a dark and dry space, to packing them in silica, to microwaving them! After your flowers are dry, you can use them in a variety of arts and crafts projects: bookmarks, picture frames, decorating candles, cards and just about any surface. We have several books on drying flowers and flower projects in the library. Be sure to also check out the slide show below and head out to your back yard and local craft store for some fun with flowers!
