Put sugar, water, and dried lavender in a medium saucepan, stir, and bring to a boil.
Once mixture comes to a boil, lower to a simmer and let simmer for about 10 minutes, until it thickens.
Turn off the heat, cover the saucepan, and let steep for about an hour.
Push syrup through a mesh sieve to strain out lavender buds and into an airtight container. Place in fridge to cool.
