The third week of September is Flower Week. You can use dried flowers to make an air freshener.


Air Freshener

Materials:

  • poster board
  • scissors
  • hole punch
  • yarn
  • glue
  • dried flowers

Directions:

  1. Cut shape out of poster board.
  2. You may opt to paint or decorate poster board before going any further.
  3. Punch a hole in the top and tie the yarn through it.
  4. Glue dried flowers to one side of the poster board.
  5. Let dry completely.
  6. Now you can add more flowers to the other side.
  7. Once both sides are dry, hang air freshener.
  8. Experiment with different kinds of dried flowers. Which work best?
