Front Cover
Sterling Publishing Company, 1996 - Crafts & Hobbies - 96 pages
If you enjoy flowers, you'll love preserving their beauty for year-round pleasure, and dried flower crafts are perfect for holiday decoration, impressive gifts, or simply to brighten up your home. When dried, the blossoms erupt in rich colors that bring out their natural essence to give a rustically elegant feel to any room. Start with basic techniques like making bows, working with floral wire, wielding a glue gun, and making wreath bases. Then let your imagination loose with a variety of projects, including garlands, swags, arrangements, topiaries, wreaths, and much more. Advanced projects like picture frames, boxes, floral jewelry, Christmas ornaments, and others will keep you challenged for many seasons to come. A complete appendix of flower-drying techniques, including simple air drying, microwave drying, pressing and desiccants gives you all the guidance you need to succeed.
