Pressed flower crafts are a great way to preserve pressed flowers while adding another dimension of beauty to your craft. If you have some pressed flowers in your home, this article is for you! We will discuss three easy steps that will help get you started on making pressed flower crafts today.
The first step is to find pressed flowers. The easiest way to do this is to go outside and collect some of these flowers after a rainstorm or when it’s sunny out so they will be dry. Make sure you choose pressed flat flowers, as these tend to work the best for projects like pressed flower crafts.
The second step is to carefully handle your flowers with tweezers and tongs based on what other materials you plan to use in your craft project. For example, if you decide to use glue, make sure not to touch them too much until they have dried, as this could cause damage (you wouldn’t want those beautiful petals falling off).
The third step is to start crafting! Depending on the type of pressed flower craft project you are making, there are so many different things that can be done to make your pressed flower crafts unique. For example, if you want something quick and straightforward but cute, consider simply gluing them onto a piece of paper or cardstock for display somewhere in your home (like above).
Put yourself out there and share these pressed flower craft by posting pictures online- social media sites like Pinterest would be great for this as well as blogs.
