❷ In order that the flowers do not lose their shape, i.e. the petals do not hang but instead stand correctly, flowers are always dried with the flowers facing downwards. So tie them together on the stems to form a bouquet and hang it upside down in a warm, sunny place. However, this must be protected from rain and wind. The flowers dry very well in a warm and dark room in the house.

❸ It will take some time to dry. However, the result is impressive. You can always recognize the dried flowers by the fact that they rustle quietly when they are removed. However, you have to be very careful here, because the dried flowers can break quickly.

❹ You can then preserve the dried bouquet with a little hairspray. As a rule, however, the flowers should stay that way and bring the flowery summer into the house for a few months, if not years.
