Pressed Flower Ornaments


Pressed Flower Ornaments



This past summer I began a love affair with pressing flowers. I wasn't sure what I would do with them all, I just knew that come winter they would bring me joy to craft with. Now that we are in the midst of a real deep freeze, it was such a treat to peek into the books where they lay waiting and gently reveal the delicate little flowers I had collected. Perfect for creating these pressed flower ornaments!
If you have some kicking around and want to create some too, here's how it goes...

You will need:
1 cup baking soda
1/2 cup corn starch
3/4 cup of warm water
rolling pin
round cookie cutter or cup for cutting your clay circles
pressed flowers
mod podge
paint brush
string
To begin:
Follow this tutorial to make the white clay. 
Cut out your clay with a cup or a round cookie cutter.

Poke a hole where your string can go through. 


 Bake at 100 degrees C for an hour. 


Choose your flower layouts.


Add a layer of mod podge to the front of your ornament and place your flower(s) on top.


Gently paint a layer of mod podge over top of the flower and ornament. 


Be sure to make sure your holes don't get clogged with mod podge and if they do poke it out with a needle.



String your ornament...


hang on your tree...


and sit back with something to sip, while you admire the little faces of summer looking back at you!


 Wishing all a peace & joy filled time of preparation for Christmas.
With love
Shanti

  2. What a neat idea, I was wondering if the clay could be painted and would you do it before or after baking, thanks for sharing.

  7. I think you could make them, bake them, and then paint on them. These are wonderful, and I'm going to check the local crafts stores to see if I can find some ready-to-use pressed flowers to try to make some, since I don't have a flower press just yet. :)

  9. What a wonderful and beautiful idea! Thank you for sharing! Will definitely be making these this summer. One question, the lowest temp my oven will go is 170, do you have any suggestions?

    1. 170 should be fine. Just keep an eye on them. Thanks for coming by!

      Delete
    2. 100 degrees C is approx = 212 degrees F (Is your 170 in F degrees?) My oven won't preheat below 170F either. Hope this helps.

  11. I have these in my dehydrator right now. Do they get hard or just dry?

  12. will the flowers loose their color in the future?

    1. That was my question too. I have a particularly red maple leaf in my flower press right now and I was thinking of doing something with it for Christmas. This type of an ornament was an idea I had, but I'd like to do something where it will keep its nice red colour, if possible...

  20. Let's talk about e-cigarette or vapes. Cause I just got a Relx, very popular in Australia even the overseas market. The first time I heard about it, Relx. I know the only thing in your mind was, what's the difference between Juul and Relx? Which is better?

I know the only thing in your mind was, what's the difference between Juul and Relx?juul vs relx, which is better? Most of you have probably heard about Juul by now. Immensely popular. I've been vaping for over 18 months now, gonna be 2 years pretty soon. I started out with the more traditional sub-ohm system, with a mod and rechargeable batteries and an atomizer on top, which can be filled with juice later on. I bought a Relx, just to check it out. I literally just got it and just unboxed it. So let's use it for the first time and get some first impressions. Not in any way a comprehensive, long-term review.juul レビュー

  28. تفاوت دیگر بلیط سیستمی با چارتری در رابطه با قرارگرفتن نام مسافر در لیست پرواز پس از خرید بلیط است. شاید برای شما یا اطرافیانتان این اتفاق افتاده باشد که نزدیک به ساعت پرواز، بلیط چارتر هواپیما خریده‌اید؛ اما هنگام مراجعه به کانتر فرودگاه و دریافت کارت پرواز، به شما اعلام می‌شود که نامتان در لیست پرواز وجود ندارد؛ احتمالاً این لحظه پراسترس‌ترین لحظه سفرتان است. داستان از این قرار است که وقتی بلیط سیستمی بخرید نامتان به‌طور اتوماتیک به لیست پرواز ایرلاین اضافه می‌شود
