SP DIY: How to Create a Dried Flower Frame
We don't know if it's just the SP team but when Spring arrives we always
want to give our homes a little refresh! One quick and easy way to do this instantly (and
inexpensively) is to freshen up or add some new photo frames. And you don't
necessarily have to add images to these. Our dried flowers look beautiful enclosed in clear glass frames on walls,
shelves, or side tables. Get creative by following our 5
easy steps to create your own Dried Flower Frame.
you will need:
Dried flowers (check out our Dried
Letterbox Bouquets )
Glass frame (our frame is from Matalan
Clear drying glue
Small paint brush
A heavy book (to gently press the dried flowers)
Small paper towel
Step 1: Select Flowers
you start make sure you have thoroughly cleaned the glass frames. Trust us you
do not want to spend time getting creative to then find at the end that there are
marks all over the glass.
Select from your dried bouquet the stems you would like to include in your frame.
Step 2: Cut &
Once your selection has been made cut
the stems to the required size for your frame. You may want to remove some stems
like we have done with the yellow flowers in the image below. Open your heavy
book, place your paper towel inside (this will catch any pieces of flowers that
may flake) and press down on the flowers gently. Don't add all the flowers at
once, do this individually.
Top Tip: Some flowers may be harder to press than others, for those flowers we suggest closing your book and placing a few heavy books on top for a while - pop off and have a cuppa.
Organize the flowers neatly so you know what you are working with. Then start
to think about how you want them to look in the frame, there is no right or
wrong way to do this. We do suggest that you take time to play around with the
flowers first. When you have decided on the positioning use your paintbrush to apply
the glue to the flowers and press gently onto the glass frame.
Once you are happy with how you have arranged your flowers, gently place
the second piece of glass on top and carefully slide the glass back into the frame.
Step 5: Enjoy
Now it's time to decide where you will showcase
your gorgeous creation. Regardless of where you decide to place it, we know it
will brighten up your room and make you smile. If you enjoyed this DIY, make
