Making Lavender Bottles/Wands
I recently learned how to make lavender bottles/wands and I *love* them. For anyone who makes them I need some help!
I know they need to be made while the stems are still pliable, but I was just offered a chance to trim the flowers off a huge lavender plant. Add to that, I'm going to a Lavender Festival this weekend--I *know* I will just *have* to buy more !
My question is, is there a way to keep the cut stems pliable for an extended time until I can make them into wands? There is no way I can use all of this lavender before the stems dry out too much to use. I will be drying some, but I would like to make a bunch of wands/bottles.
