I did it!
I dried them!
First time drying hydrangeas!
|All four milk glass vases were Salvation Army purchases.|
|I cut the stems on Monday,|
hung them upside down in pairs from the light fixture with jute,
and they were dry Thursday!
|I used a little styrofoam chunk in each vase.|
I laid a scrap piece of burlap over the styrofoam
and used a screw driver to make holes through it and the styrofoam.
I cut stems to length and stuck them in the holes!
|I had these in my head for quite a while....|
Trish at The Old Post Road paints wonderful pictures of flowers in vases
that look like these.
So, a little reversal going on .....
her paintings inspiring the real flowers!
