Drying Flowers

Just pick the flowers with the stems on and put them in a vase of water. Leave them in the vase and replenish the water as needed, until the daffodil flowers are completely dry. It takes about a week. I don't know why they dry so well this way, but it is simple and works great. I use the dried heads in wreath making.

You can use your microwave to dry flowers more quickly than other methods. There are a few mediums you can place them in for this process. Silica gel is a good choice, but you can also use kitty litter or a combination of equal parts borax and cornmeal. This is a page about drying flowers in the microwave.
