How do you dry flowers?

Proper Conditions for Drying Flowers

The most important things to keep in mind when drying flowers are to keep the flowers out of direct sunlight and damp places.

The color of your drying flowers will fade dramatically if they come in contact with direct sunlight. While you do not have to dry your flowers in a dark room, they should not be dried in front of a window or beside a doorway that leads outside.

Flowers do better when they are drying out in a room that is relatively warm and dry. If you dry flowers in a room that gets steamy or is high in humidity, the flowers may stay soft and start to mould.
