    Leave stems on, especially if they are long--like roses; let them dry out by hanging them upside down tied at the stems. Put them in a dark dry place, closet, and check from time to time, check for mildew. then when dry, spray with clear hair spray. they are then ready for a vase or whatever use.
    P.S. Don't put in water. Good luck

    Depends on the type of flowers... Lavender, roses, etc.. tie or rubber band into a bunch and hand UPSIDE DOWN until they are completely dry... then use hairspray to stop shedding...
    If you want to press them.. check out Pintrest or Yutube... there is lots of info on how to press/dry them in a microwave

    I simply group them loosely together with string then hang them upside down until the stems and heads are thoroughly dry. I try to keep the string as loose as possible so the blossoms don’t get squashed and distorted. Roses dry beautifully this way! Depending on the blossom, I spray with an inexpensive brand of hairspray. There are “proper” ways to dry flowers such as with silica and cat litter, etc. Directions can easily be found on Google, You Tube, Pinterest, etc.
