MYO: Flower Drying Formula
If your garden is producing beautiful flowers and you'd like to find a way to save them or reuse them in your own homemade dried arrangements you'll adore this simple, inexpensive homemade flower drying formula!
5 C. white cornmeal
1 1/2 c. borax
Combine the two ingredients, ensuring that they mix well. Pour some into a shallow container or paper bag, such as a lunch sack. Place the flowers on mix, then gently pour remaining mix over flowers, making sure they are completely covered.
The recipe can be doubled or tripled as needed. Place in a cool dark area to set for 2 weeks, then carefully remove the flowers from the bag. These dried flowers will last for years!
