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
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


  1. those are fantastic! just beautiful. :)

  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.

    1. Sure you could after baking. You could also buy that real fine glitter and put it over the modge podge afrer painting. Then flower then modge again.i used to own a ceramic shop
      Not the same clay but it helps with the painting steps..have fun !

  3. Really gorgeous!! Wish I had some flowers pressed now! But will come up with some variation...thinking feathers! :)

  4. I love these - what a great idea!

  5. Veru beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  6. So beautiful! And I gotta say, so classic YOU. I love it!

  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. :)

  8. Definitely bake first then paint…happy crafting everyone!

  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!

    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.

  10. These are absolutely beautiful! I'm so glad that I found your post while our garden is in full bloom. We'll be heading out this very day to collect some bright things to press. Thanks!

  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...

  13. I am happy to find much useful information in the post, writing sequence is awesome, I always look for quality content, thanks for sharing

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

  43. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world had crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure for Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes,Shingles, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetes,Fibroid,Parkinson's,Alzheimer’s disease,Bechet’s disease,Crohn’s disease,Cushing’s disease,Heart failure,Multiple Sclerosis,HypertensionFatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Autism,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone ToxicitySyndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans ProgresS sclerosis,Seizures,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases,,Copd,Glaucoma., Cataracts,Macular degeneration,Cardiovascular disease,Lung disease.Enlarged prostate,Osteoporosis.
