Pressing Flowers.​

Pressing Flowers… in case you are already confused by what this means I will explain…

Pressing flowers is a method of drying flowers that includes pressing them flat (typically in a large book).

I am by no means an expert in the field of ‘pressing flowers but I have recently gotten back into this hobby and think it is a worthwhile activity to master.

Pressing flowers provides the best solution to the decay of flowers and the loss of their beauty. Pressing them maintains their beauty and provides a thoughtful gift or decoration.

What you will need:

Steps:

  1. Pick some pretty flowers (make sure they are dry and not dewy or wet from rain).
  2. Place a piece of parchment paper in a book.
  3. Now place all the flowers in the book.
  4. Shut the book and leave flowers for 10 days.
  5. Once dried spray the flowers with hairspray to maintain strength.
  6. Now you can get creative! Put them in a frame or on a card or have them hanging in your room!
