Aren’t hydrangeas beautiful? I have several bushes that started out as tiny specimens and have grown large through the years. Hydrangea flowers fade into lovely, muted colors. In this post, I am showing how I dry hydrangea blossoms to use in arrangements to enjoy through the winter.
One day last week when two of our granddaughters were here, we spent time on the patio making a big mess!
How I dry hydrangea blossoms
Using clippers, I cut the blossoms from a few of my hydrangea bushes. The girls stripped off the leaves simply by pulling them off.
The openings between the slats in the picnic table provided a convenient place to to hold each stem while we worked. We had more blossoms than we knew what to do.
We brought the blossoms in and filled many vases and pitchers! Usually I add water to the containers but this time I didn’t and the blossoms dried just as nice.
After a week in the containers, the hydrangea blossoms are dried and ready to display or use in craft projects.
