Today I made my first Lavender Wand of the year. This is another craft that my Grandmother taught me to do. She used to make them as a child.
You need an odd number of freshly picked lavender stems, that are dry and just before the flowers are in full bloom. I used nine. You also need some scissors, cotton, a needle and about a metre of ribbon.
Remove all of the leaves from the stems and bind together just under the flowers.
