A fresh bunch of flowers will not last more than a week. But how different is it with a bunch of dried lavender. It will last for years. But what to do with an everlasting lavender bouquet? I’ll show different ways to use a lavender bouquet and how to keep it beautiful.
You can put a bunch of dried lavender in a vase. But even nicer is to use glass bottles, simple jus de Orange bottles will do just fine. Short stem lavender flowers you can fit in even smaller bottles.
How long does a lavender bouquet last?
Everlasting is a big word but a well dried lavender bouquet wil last a very long time. Lavender scent remains for years and if it fades away just touch the flowers.
To keep them beautiful put hem out of direct sunlight. So colours stay brighter. Another problem is dust. You can dust them very carefully or air them outside. Of course flowers will fall off. This flowers you can use in a DIY body scrub, bath salts and in your own lavender soap. So don’t throw them away
With a single lavender flower you can make an invitation card or to wrap a present.
