This summer I began experimenting with pressing flowers from my garden. I wanted to display them, so I decided to use a thrifted frame I had on hand to create this pressed flower art.
Pressed Flower Art
To create my pressed flower art I used pressed flowers, a frame and glue.
The first thing I did was remove the backing. I wanted the pressed flowers to be the main focus so I decided to utilize the white backing of the frame as the backdrop for my flowers.
The most fun part of creating this piece was playing with the layout of the flowers. Pressed flowers are fragile, so I had to be careful.
When I decided upon a layout that I liked, I used hot glue to adhere them to the backing.
I used a very small amount to avoid bumps on my flowers.
Here they are safely adhered to the frame backing.
I then used a glue stick to adhere four leaf clovers, collected from my yard and pressed by my child, to both sides of the flowers.
The touch of greenery completed the piece.
I then placed the pressed flower art back into the frame.
I used hot glue to secure it since there were no nails or staples in place.
I allowed the hot glue to fully dry before flipping the piece over and admiring my work. I love how it turned out. The neutral colors surrounding the flowers and greenery really help to showcase there beauty. I hope to press more flowers and create more pressed flower art in the future. It's a great way to preserve your garden and sweet greenery or flowers picked by loved ones.
