Connecting with nature in the winter or colder months can feel more challenging, so working with fresh or dried flowers can help reconnect you by bringing the outdoors in.
Fortunately, if you don't have a garden (or your garden is dormant), you can purchase flowers from your local grocer or online, delivered to your front door.
Dried flowers can add beauty to your living space and a fresh scent if you use flowers like Lavender, Eucalyptus, and Russian Sage. They also offer hope for what's to come when the weather gets warmer.
The drying process is simple for most flowers, where all you have to do is tie a bunch of flowers together at the base of the stems with twine and hang them upside-down for a week or two (out of direct sunlight).
You can use dried flowers to make various things, like floral arrangements, candles, bath bombs, potpourri, pressed flower art, drawer sachets, and soaps.
