DIY pressed flower skull art

Share

Pressed Spring flowers make fantastic art when decoupaged in any arrangement on some thick paper and framed. I love the juxtaposition of a skull shape made from flowers, kind of sugar-skull-esque. This is a fun and easy project to do with your DIY Pressed Flowers‘… would also make a great Mother’s Day gift!

Do It!:

  1. Plan the layout of your dried flowers and leaves in a pattern you like.  I chose a skull because I like the juxtaposition. Play with using stems, leaves and small flowers to create curves and lines for your perfect shape. The tweezers help with the delicate flowers.
  2. Mod Podge all your foliage down to the paper by lifting each flower and painting the paper under it and laying the flower back down. Let dry.
  3. Cover all your flowers and leaves in a thin layer of Mod Podge. This is going to help prevent the color from fading and keep your art in place.  Let dry.
  4. Frame your new dried flower masterpiece and hang it!
