Pressed Flower Vases

We have been collecting and pressing flowers so we decided to use them to make a pretty flower vase!

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    You need to start this one a few days before by collecting and pressing flowers and allowing them to dry. We actually have a flower press but if you don't have one an old-fashioned dictionary or phone book works great! Just place paper towels in between the pages and limit it to 2-3 flowers (depending on the size) per page.

  • Step 2

    Next, lay out a small glass vase or a glass jar. We found these vases at the dollar store. Take a small amount of Mod Podge glue and spread down a bit of a base with your sponge brush.

    Next, gently lay your flower on the glue base and lightly coat it with more Mod Podge.

    Even out the edges if your child needs help and don't worry- the Mod Podge will dry clear!
