Non alcoholic bottles

Postby Diane » Sun Jul 28, 2019 11:32 am

It was too hot to do any gardening the other day so I picked some lavender (had to do some negotiations with the bees about this!)..and made lavender bottles.

Do you have some instructions Diane?
I'm sure my craft loving friends would enjoy an opportunity to make these.

If you look on You Tube and find "How to make lavender bottles" there are several tutorials. I use 7 stems but you could use more as long as it's an odd number. Make them before the stems on the plants get too brittle. And watch out for the bees! They're quite easy. When the scent fades then just refresh with lavender oil.

They look very pretty, Diane, and would make nice little gifts......
