Homemade Flower Sachets

Make Your Own Flower Sachets
Make Your Own Flower Sachets

Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Daisy here with another fun craft. This one is so simple you can probably do it all on your own – and it will make some great gifts.  We’re going to make our own summer flower sachets.

  1. First you need to pick some flowers or herbs.  Lavender is a great plant to use – you can even buy dried lavender at a craft store if you don’t have any growing at home.
  2. Next strip the stems off the blooms and then set your flowers and herbs to dry in the sun.  You can place them on newspaper or on a mesh drying rack – just be sure to anchor them down so they don’t fly away in the sun.
  3. Once the flowers have dried, pack them into a small, airy fabric bag and you have homemade potpourri sachets.  Mesh bags can often be found online or at craft stores, or you can make your own out of old nylon stocking

Then you can pass out the backs as gift for your friends, stash them in your drawers or closets or even hang in them in your locker at school.
