TIP: After your flowers are "done", toss them in your compost bin or back into your flower bed for the earth to use as needed.
Pinterest one day I saw an old wooden hanger with wild flowers hanging from it and it gave me the idea to make this!
Whenever I've seen herbs being dried before, they were always hanging in little bundles like you see here. I think they are pretty while fresh and after they have dried too.
- Bundle your herbs like above (cut ends to the top).
- Cut a piece of twine about 12" long. Tie it loosely around the bundle. Turn the bundle over with tied part down.
- Cut another piece of twine about 6" long. Slip it through the loop of the first tie as shown above.
- Now flip your bundles over and tie the 6" piece of twine in a loose knot to the hanger. Space your bundles evenly to your liking.
This could be hung in the kitchen as well, how cute would that be? Of course you could use several different types of herbs as well, if you had them.
I forgot to mention that this smells really nice too. It's hanging above the couch and I usually hang out there when ooohing and aaahing over Instagram. Please follow me, I'm ddcamp170 on there.
