Framing Pressed Flowers
I found these great looking, modern frames at a local thrift store for 5 dollars a piece. Before I found them i was trying to figure out what to hang in my bedroom to freshen it up a bit when i found these frames. These are at least more than 6 months old and I still hadn’t figured out what picture to put in them. Last week I remembered an idea I had had over the summer about collecting leaves and flowers to frame and I liked the idea. Not being able to find anything I wanted to press, I was curious if amazon sold already pressed flowers and low and behold, they do. My favorite flower are daisies, and amazon had pressed flowers so I found a 3 pack that were reasonably priced and I love them! They were perfect!
So I took the frames, cut an 8 x 10 piece of black paper and mounted it over the paper that was there, and started gluing down with glue dots the pieces into an interesting formation on each of the 3 frames.
I tried to find a similar frame on Amazon but couldn’t find the same with the 2 glass panes, so i found the same sized ones but they have a white mat around the 8 x 10 picture part so might have at least a similar effect if you want to try and recreate this.
I can’t wait to hang them! I’ll post an update as i redecorate.
Here are some amazon affiliate links to the flowers i used and some similar frames to what i used that i found at the thrift store. Thanks for visiting and have a good day!
