Lovely DIY Ideas Using Dried Herbs and Flowers

If you’ve never tried delicate crafting projects that involve working with dried flowers and herbs then we’re sorry to tell you that you’ve been missing out! We’ve long been fans of dried flower and leaf pressing because the result is naturally beautiful, but we’re always on the lookout for new project ideas that will help us take those dried things to the next level in how gorgeously they’re display.

Just in case you’d love to try your hand at getting creative with dried herbs and flowers as well, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve found so far in our search for inspiration!

1. Bouquet breadsticks

Just because you’ve dried some herbs doesn’t mean that you can still work with them in the kitchen in order to do a cooking project rather than a decorative craft! We’re actually completely in love with the way Kitchen Notebook not only added fragrant flavour to but also decorated their homemade breadsticks by flattening dried herbs to the top surface before baking them.

2. Dried flower canvas art

Canvas crafts are another thing we’ve always loved doing but we enjoy making sure that we’re always trying new techniques whenever we can, rather than just painting on a canvas like we’ve done countless times before. That’s why we were so pleased when we came across this fantastic dried flower and calligraphy art idea featured step by step on Design Sponge!

3. Lovely dried flower arrangements

Maybe you’d rather create something that preserves the natural shape of the flowers you’re drying so you can display them as realistically as possible, rather than only ever drying them while also pressed? In that case, we’d certainly suggest taking a look at how Save on Crafts dried their flowers by hanging them just so and then arranged them as a stunning bouquet that won’t wilt.

4. Pressed flower monograms

Maybe pressing delicate little flowers to try really is your favourite method and you’re looking for something that will help you arrange them interestingly but also simply? In that case, we ‘d encourage you to take a look at how Kin made these fantastic dried and pressed flower framed monograms that make great decor and also fantastic gifts!
