Forget everything you thought you knew about dried flowers! If the thought of dried flower arrangements is conjuring up images of stuffy decor that hasn't seen the light of day in decades think again. Preserved floral arrangements are cool again, and not only are they beautiful, they'll also last infinitely longer than fresh flowers. This gorgeous book offers a new approach to flower arranging with dried botanicals, exploring ways to preserve flowers' beauty forever through drying and pressing, and then presents a catalogue of 30 flowers that are interesting for colour, texture and sculptural appeal in arrangements. 15 step-by-step projects then give you creative ideas for displaying dried flowers including bouquets, wreaths, wall hangings, wall art, flower crowns and buttonholes for weddings, terrariums, candles and more. These exquisite floral creations will give a bohemian and poetic touch to your interior decor and everlasting beauty to your home.
