    First make a dried lavender bunch

    Arrange the lavender stems neatly and tie with the ribbon.

    Tie a neat bow and trim the ends of the ribbon.

    Next add the other dried flowers

    Push the wheat stems under the ribbon so they are arranged symmetrically.

    Separate 3 or 4 florets with stems from the delphinium flower spike.

    Push the floret stems behind the bow so that they are held in place.
    Tip – if you find placing the delphiniums fiddly, try using a glue gun instead.

    Trim all the stems of the dried flowers to your preferred length.
