LAVENDER STICKS OR BOTTLES
These were very popular in the Victorian era
of almost one hundred years ago. Lavender sticks are made by
taking twenty five or thirty lavender spikes when they are in
full bloom. Lay them down on a flat surface, then push them
so that the lavender heads are even. Allow eight inches of stem
and cut the remainder off, being sure that each stalk is the
same length. At the base of the flower heads or blooms where
the bare stem begins, firmly tie it with a strong string. The
loose flower heads are bent back over the stalk, and woven with
a suitable ribbon material until the heads are completely covered.
The base of the stems are tightly woven to prevent them from
fraying or breaking.
