How to Hang Dried French Lavender


Lavender is a plant that has been used for centuries for several beneficial uses, such as potpourri, perfume, body care products and homeopathic medicine. After lavender is dried out, especially French lavender, it provides a sweet scent throughout your household and a beautiful violet color to any decor, especially French Country decor. There are quite a few ways to hang up dried lavender, depending on your decorating style or where you want the lavender to be placed.

Step 1

Gather lavender sprigs into a bundle. Use sprigs that have long stems when making bundles, as they will hold together more easily. After gathering the sprigs together, even up the ends by trimming them.

Step 2

Secure the stems together (about halfway up) with a rubber band. Wrap a piece of cut ribbon (the color and size depends on what you desire or what matches your decor best) around the rubber band and tie it in a bow for a more attractive appearance. You can also add a bow of twine directly above the ribbon, and let the ends hang loose on both.

Step 3

Hook the ends of the twine on the lavender bouquets over curtain rods, doorknobs or cabinet knobs. They can also be set on top of cabinets and bookshelves. Look elsewhere in your home to accent with bouquets of lavender.

Step 4

Insert wall hooks evenly across a wall, then tie lavender bouquets with the twine to each hook. You can place them straight and even or scattered along the wall.

Step 5

Place dried lavender bouquets in vases around the kitchen or in bedrooms, as they will provide a pleasant aroma as well as a splash of color.
