Mothers Day Heralds the Start of Spring
I always love late winter/early spring because it is full of promise. If we have an afternoon or two of golden sunlight, we treasure the small taster of things to come.
For me, Mothers Day represents the start of spring when I love to see daffodils and primroses by the side of the road.
Using Dried Flowers for Mothers Day Gift Ideas
A dried flower or fresh bouquet
Why not pick a posy from the garden (it always surprises me what looks good even this early in the year) or gather together some dried flowers to make your own bouquet? If you are a seasoned dried flower crafter you probably have a stash of material you dried last summer!
How to dry flowers in your airing cupboard
Make a lavender bag, dried flower scented sachet or sleep pillow.
Buy an empty bag or make one, and fill it with dried lavender to refresh drawers and linen, aid sleep and keep the moths away. It can be squeezed periodically to refresh.
Add some rose buds or petals for a mixed dried flower scented sachet with a sweet fragrance.
Add some dried hops or chamomile to the dried lavender for a sleep pillow.
Fill a gift basket with your dried flower crafts
Put together your own lavender scented gift basket with handmade soap, essential oil, lavender bag, lavender bunch, or potpourri.
