Preserve your bouquet (or any special flowers) in an ornament

By on Dec. 25th

Susie had a bouquet that was collecting dust and getting sadder by the day. In an attempt to preserve the bouquet and find a way to display it, the dried flower bouquet ornament was born. While this is a great fit for those who have a floral bouquet on hand, any flowers that you collected (or received from a special someone) would be a fit for this project.

You'll need an ornament that's got a pretty big opening and will hold a fair bit of flora. Dry your flowers (here's a how-to!), trim them into smaller buds and pretty pieces, insert into the clear ornament, and that's it: instant holiday decor with a whole lot of extra meaning.
