Nature Crafts With a Microwave
What I like about the projects in this is that they don’t fit the traditional look one might attribute to crafts made of dried materials. The flowers are bright, look very attractive and a wide variety of natural dried materials (including flowers, moss and fungi, foliage, herbs, berries, spices, eucalyptus, cones, pods, seedheads, nuts, cattails, raffia, vegetables, fruit and popcorn) are used to make up these arrangements.

Nature Printing with Herbs Fruits and Flowers
For a small book, it is packed with information on a wide variety of printing techniques and different materials with which you can create fun, useful and decorative projects.

Potpourri Crafts
The book opens with a thorough introduction to growing and making potpourri, various methods of flower drying and the materials you need to get started. The book could use an index page so readers could find the crafts faster.

Step By Step Dried Flowers
This book has 96 jam-packed pages of information on drying flowers and arrangements to create using dried flowers.

Wreath Making Basics
This book's strengths lie in its in-depth chapters on the basics of wreath construction that any wreath making beginner should know such as How to Make a Base and how to innovate them, Tools and Nifty Gadgets, Materials and Design.

Wreaths 'Round The Year
The wreaths in this book are divided into the chapters Winter Warmers, Spring Flings, Summer Frolics, Fall Harvests, Celebrations and Year 'Round Whimsies.  I noticed that the author did not create names for most of the wreaths so it can be a bit of a pain to tell your friends about the wreaths without referring to a page number.

Fresh Ideas in Dried Flowers
Fresh Ideas in Dried Flowers is full of unique and unusual arrangements. There is a handy Flower Drying Chart at the back of the book, which outlines the best methods for drying the various types of flowers you will be using for the arrangements in this book. There are also resources for equipment, florists, and info on commercial drying methods available (i.e. freeze drying services you can purchase) and additional supplies and methods you can find out about online.
