Dried flowers Christmas baubles

An unusual Christmas decoration with dried flowers

Last year I read this great article about making dried flowers baubles, and was inspired to try it for myself. I tried two different types of baubles – plastic ones that pull in half from the craft shop, and normal clear glass ones. I have loads of dried plant material from my garden, having spent all summer drying flowers and petals! I chose jewel colours such as red, golden yellow and blue for a Christmas feel.

These baubles are in two parts which snap together to hold the contents in place.

Glass dried flower baubles

These are trickier because there is only a small opening at the top for the dried flowers to fit through. Consequently I only used petals for this one.

Well that’s probably my last Christmas post, and possibly my last post of 2013, so
Best wishes for the festive season!
