Technique No. 1 :
The first technique consists of drying the flowers in the form of a bouquet. So collect all the carefully selected and stripped flowers and then wrap them with string or rubber band. It is important not to overtighten the bars to prevent damage.
Technique No. 2 :
Another technique is to hang each flower individually upside down. You place them in a dark, damp and cool room. The garage or basement is open.
