DIY-Dried flowers



Flowers make me go crazy.but it isnt possible that we buy fresh flowers daily.
This summer I tried my hands on making a dry flower arrangement.
Heliconia is classified as a rare plant. This is how it looks.



I plucked some,left it to dry under the sun for a few hours and then my daughter and self tried painting the flowers.



This is the result. Let me know,will you try it too?

This is a great idea! I love flowers, but its difficult to get fresh flowers in summer in Gurgaon. Dried flowers collect dust over time, but these are looking lovely after being painted over

Fab idea!! I love flowers as well.. In Dubai... buying fresh flowers is a pretty expensive deal!! And somehow I'm not big on dried flowers!!

I sure like your idea!!
