Spring time is almost here and, even though we’re still facing chilly weather, we’re already feeling the spirit in the change of the seasons. We’re ready for greenery, warm winds, and flowers everywhere! Luckily for us, flowers are an awesome tool for crafts and DIY projects, meaning we can enjoy them all spring in more ways then just cut at the stem and blooming from a vase. In fact, we love preserving their beauty so much that we usually press flowers every spring. Deciding what to do with them after, however, is the real key.
Check out these 15 awesome pressed flower crafts that will keep your DIY sessions for the whole season colourful and irresistibly pretty.
1. Pressed flower necklace pendant
If you’ve ever worked with customizable lockets and jewelry pieces then you already know how much fun it can be to create your own pattern and design in the centre. Many people use the gems and trinkets made by the company they bought their locket from to fill the insides but we always like searching for inspiration that helps us get a little more creative. That’s why we love the way All Things With Purpose preserved a piece of dried flower petal in this little window locket; the detail you can see in petal is breathtaking. `
2. Pressed flower luminaries
Luminaries have always been one of our favourite things to make. No matter what style, shape, or colour you use for yours, they always look completely gorgeous the second they’re lit up and glowing. We love the way A Practical Wedding used pressed flowers and leaves to decorate the outside of their little lamps and also cast beautifully silhouetted shadows across the whole surrounding area.
3. Pressed flower bookmarks
Do you adore the idea of crafting with pressed flowers but you’re looking for something very simple that other people, like your kids or guests at a baby shower, can have fun helping you make? Then check out these adorable little dried flower bookmarks! Baby Centre shows you how they’re made using decoupage techniques.
4. Pressed flower coasters
Are you the kind of home person who loves to completely roll over all of your accessorized decor seasonally? Then there are plenty of awesome ways for you to incorporate dried flowers into your home’s scheme. We think these DIY dried flower coasts, sandwiched between two clear panes, are completely adorable! Check them out in more detail on Brit + Co..
