Crafting with flowers is a fun and creative activity. Here are a few ideas to get started:
Flower press: Make your own flower press to dry and store flowers. Place flower petals between sheets of kitchen paper and place them between cardboard. Put some heavy books on top and let them dry for a few weeks. After drying, you can use the dried petals for other craft projects, such as making cards or paintings.
Flower wreath: Collect flowers with long stems and make a flower wreath. Tie the stems together using thin florist wire or a sturdy rope. You can then use the wreath as decoration for, say, a wedding, party or just to brighten up your room.
Flower cards: Make your own greeting cards with real flowers. Cut flowers from magazines or use dried petals. Stick the flowers on sturdy paper and add a personal message. The result is a unique and beautiful card.
Flower pressings: Use dried flowers to create works of art. Place the dried flowers on a sheet of paper and cover them with transparent contact paper. Press the contact paper well to keep the flowers in place. You can frame the flower pressings or use them to decorate notebooks, cards or other creative projects.
Flower jars: Decorate clay jars with paint, glitter or mosaic and stick real flowers on the outside. You can also use fake flowers if you want them to last longer. These flower pots can serve as beautiful decorative pieces for the table or as gifts.
Flower crowns: Make cute flower crowns for children. Use silk flowers, green florist wire and ribbon. Wrap the florist wire around the child's head and attach the flowers using glue or wire. Decorate the crown with ribbons at the back for an extra festive effect.
Hope these ideas inspire you to start crafting with flowers. Have fun making your own flower creations!
