As we enter Spring and the flowers are starting to bloom, I figured it would be the perfect time to compile my favorite DIY pressed flower projects. With these ideas, you can enjoy Spring flowers year round. These would also be great ideas for Spring birthdays, hostess gifts, or Mother’s Day gifts.
1. DIY Pressed Flower Coasters
I adore this very simple and inexpensive DIY pressed flower project! This would be the perfect Mother’s Day or hostess gift and I may have to make some for myself I love them so much. All you need are pressed flowers, 4×4 glass tiles, copper tape, and E6000 glue. (via Brit + Co)
2. Pressed Flower Candle
What is better than a lavender scented candle? Well, one with real lavender in it of course. Check out this tutorial on how to make your own DIY pressed flower candle. (via Adventures in Making)
You can also attach pressed flowers on the outside of store bought candles for a slightly different, but equally pretty look like this (via We Made This Home):
3. DIY Pressed Flower Art
Here are several inspirational ideas on how you can use pressed flowers to create gorgeous wall art. Create some for your own home or make one using your friend’s birth month flower for a thoughtful birthday gift. I love the look of hanging them in clear double glass frames like these. Or, they would look amazing styled on your shelves in these magnetic acrylic frames.

You can also arrange the pressed flowers on a matte background like in this video tutorial.
4. Watercolor-Like Prints Using Pressed Flowers
Similar to the pressed flower art ideas above, this is a unique idea to create a watercolor-like print using flowers. You don’t even need to dry them. Simply use a mallet or hammer to press the flowers into the paper to imprint the colors for this gorgeous design. You can then use the print for wall art, a greeting card, a bookmark, or whatever you would like. (via Craftberry Bush)
