2 Easy Beautiful Pressed Flower Crafts
Let’s connect with nature and collect some treasures!
🍃 This adorable nature press is easy to make and little explorers will love using it to press all the flowers, leaves, and natural wonders they find on their trails.
Plus, we have a creative idea for what to do with those pressed treasures, so read on…
1 sheet A4 cardboard
1 sheet A4 paper
𝕄𝕒𝕜𝕖 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕡𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕤:
Fold the cardboard to make a book cover
Write “Nature Press” on the front cover and decorate it with markers.
Line the inside with paper and glue it in place.
Secure the press with elastic bands.
Now head out on a nature hunt to find petals, blooms, and foliage to place in the press.
Tell the kiddos to look out for a hiking stick too… More on this later!
At home, lay heavy books on top of the press and check back in 2 weeks – those collected flowers should be dried and flat.
But what to do with them?
Decorate the hiking stick to inspire even more magical nature walks!
𝔻𝕖𝕔𝕠𝕣𝕒𝕥𝕖 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕤𝕥𝕚𝕔𝕜:
Use a water-based sealer like Mod Podge to stick the petals and leaves in place on the staff.
Then paint over another layer of sealer for protection.
Leave it to dry for about 20 minutes, and voila!
A nature-covered walking stick that will make kiddos want to go on walk after walk in the great outdoors!
