Dried Flowers + Gifts

dried celosia (cock's comb) and a few sprigs from the Christmas tree
I just finished up the last of wrapping gifts with a little Harry Potter movie-thon on the TV and the tree plugged in...glowing oh so radiant on this cloudy day.

I decided to get a little sassy and add some dried flowers to a few special packages.

A few gifts I wrapped with cut brown paper bags from the grocery store.  I think this a great way to recycle these bags and you don't have to spend your hard earned funds on wrapping paper that literally just gets ripped to shreds.

So for next year do a little planning....

Squirrel away a few brown paper bags from your various shopping outings.

Grab a few bunches of flowers from the Farmers Market to dry (here I used craspedia (yellow) and celosia (red) but I grow a ton of options!).

Throw in a little natural twine and you'll have the most festive gifts under the tree!
