Hook and Hang

Step 3: Take a paper clip and pull it apart to create an S-shape. Hook one end to the coiled rubber band on your bunch of flowers, and attach the other end to a coat hanger.

Hang the coat hanger in a warm, dry closet or attic until the flowers are dry. The drying time -- anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks -- will depend on the thickness of the flowers' stems, humidity, size of the bundle, and air temperature.
