Drying Pine Needles

I ordered some VERY long pine needles from Pine Lane (Gayle George) in Florida.   The ones from my tree are thick and about 9" long. These are thin and about twice that long! They are beautiful, but green right off the tree.   I want to dry them out some before storing them so they don't mold.   They will remain green for a while, but eventually, exposure to light will turn them a lovely honey-colored light brown.
