This tutorial for test tube dried flowers and herbs is the perfect small gift for any occasion.
In this week’s Tuesdays in The Garden, we are celebrating Christmas in July. My fellow garden bloggers (listed below) are sharing ideas on how to make gifts from the garden. One super easy gift that you can make from your garden is cute test tube dried flowers and herbs. Even if you don’t grow them, you can purchase all kinds of dried flowers and herbs online.

Test Tube Dried Flowers and Herbs Materials
To make these beauties, simply create a paper funnel to spoon your dried flowers and herbs into. Here, I used five plants, but you can experiment with fewer, or more.
The uses for this are many. They make great stocking stuffers. They are also beautiful tied on top of a wrapped gift or a gift bag.
The flowers and herbs themselves can be used in a therapeutic bath spa treatment. Or if you purchase organic, they could be used in cooking. For example, you could sprinkle them in your salad. Another idea is rolling a soft cheese in the herbs, or rimming a cocktail class with the flowers. The test tube layered flower and herb package is pretty alone by itself and would look great on display in many places in the home.
These would also make great inexpensive favors for a wedding or bridal shower.
Invite the girls over for a night of fun and creativity, over drinks and good conversation while making these easy and beautiful gifts.
Now let’s see what my fellow Tuesdays in the Garden friends are sharing this week.
