DIY Pressed Flower Art

March 21, 2014

Another DIY for my loves!

Little known fact about me, I kill flowers. Someone will buy me some and they will wilt instantly, so I have grown to love fake flowers. Today's DIY is my pressed flower art. I liked the idea of framing some pressed flowers, I have my wedding bouquet framed. So I thought I would show you a DIY to spruce up your walls!


What you need:
Fake flowers
Frame
Base for your artwork, same size as the frame. I used poster board.
Hot glue gun
Twine
Brown colored pencil


First you want to take apart the flowers, you will only need the petal part. I found it to be a little easier to finish if the plastic bud isn't attached.


Decide what you want to create. I went with a flower bouquet, but you can do an initial, a shape, or anything really! Once you decide what you are making, start gluing!


Here is what mine started to look like, I added more flower in the end.


Once you have all of the flowers glued down, draw the stems to the bouquet.


For an added touch I created a bow with the twine and glued it on.


And you're done! You really have free range to create anything you would like!



I hope you guys liked this DIY!

    1. I don't believe so. Maybe after the lights hit it awhile, but that happens to everything without archival glass!
