    Help me, crafty people!! I've got tons of wonderful dried lavender from my yard, and I need some ideas for Christmas gifts...last year I made bath salts, but I'd like to do something different this year. Candles, maybe? I can't make anything perishable, since I have to ship my gifts.
    Thanks!!

    Oh I love dried lavender!!!! Here's some ideas: sachets - use squares of cotton muslin, sew up 3 sides, fill, and tie closed with a ribbon. Floral sprays - tie the stem ends together with floral wire, then raffia. You can include other dried flowers too and hang on a wall. You can make potpourri too - pretty with dried rose petals!!!

    I saw the directions for lavender wands AFTER I'd stripped all my stems - of course - so I'm planning to do those next year!
