How to Dry Flowers in Minutes

pink rose and rose petals

Have you ever wondered if there is an easy way to dry flowers quickly? I don't mean using a flower press or buying straw flowers. I did a little investigating and found out that you can use cat litter to get the job done. 

Here is what you need to dry flowers in just minutes rather than weeks!

Microwave - Flowers- microwavable bowl - 4 cups of cat litter

Directions:

Place your flowers in the bowl and slowly cover with cat litter. Microwave on high for about three minutes. Remove bowl from microwave and let it cool down a bit. Remove cat litter and brush off your flowers! 

How do you dry flowers? What have you found works also fast and is not messy?

Of course, if you like to leave the picking and drying to professionals you might want to check out these wonderful Etsy Shops by clicking here.
