Pressed flowers are a wonderful way to savor the beauty of summer and this simple DIY project is the perfect way to display your favorite blooms. And if you’re tying the knot this summer, save a few favorite flowers from your bouquet to incorporate into this project.
1. Wipe the dishes clean; next, position your pressed flowers and greenery on the various dishes.
2. Once you’re happy with your composition, using a tiny dab of glue on a small paintbrush, adhere the flowers and greenery to the dish. Allow glue to dry before continuing. I found it helpful to place something flat and heavy like a book on top to weigh the pieces down.
3. Mix the epoxy according to the instructions. Carefully pour the epoxy evenly into the dish, submerging the florals. You may see some little bubbles floating around; get rid of them by lightly blowing on them. Larger bubbles can be popped using a toothpick or a pin.
4. Let the epoxy dry according to the instructions. Once it’s completely dry, enjoy your pressed flower display!
