What are the best flowers for drying

Drying flowers - which flowers are suitable and how to do it

Dried flowers are currently very popular. They not only look beautiful, but are also super practical - because they don't fade after a few days, but look really great for years. But not every type of flower is suitable for drying. Here you can find out which flowers are suitable for this and how you can best dry them yourself so that you can enjoy them for a long time!

The trend of puffy pampas grass and eucalyptus is far from over! The social media platforms are full of such decorative images on all interior accounts. Since dried flowers usually have more delicate cream or green tones, they look particularly chic and classy and add value to every room. Online shops now also offer bouquets of dried flowers. However, these are not very cheap and can also be easily made at home.

Which flowers can be dried well?

The following flowers and grasses are suitable for drying:

  • Gypsophila
  • Thistles
  • eucalyptus
  • Pampas grass
  • yarrow
  • Everlasting flowers
  • lavender
  • Chinese lantern flower
  • Quaking grass
  • Feather bristle grass
  • Rabbit tail grass
  • delphinium

The flower stems are simply hung upside down in a cool, dry place for a few days. You shouldn't get any sun or the colors will fade. Once the flowers have dried they can be decorated in a vase. Short styles look especially good in simple, bright vases. Long styles, such as the pampas grass, look extremely classy and chic in balloon vases.

With the dried flowers you can also conjure up beautiful dried flower wreaths. All you need is a metal ring and some craft wire. The dried flowers are then draped around the ring with suitable grasses and fixed with the craft wire.
