Dried flower DIY’s are all over Pinterest! It makes complete sense because those blooms are just way too pretty to watch wilt then toss! I have a few beautiful and hopefully inspirational ways you can rescue those pretty botanicals to keep in your home for a bit longer! Each of these dried flower DIY ideas can be modified with most any type of foliage, including fresh herbs or even branches or vines!
I love how simple this project is to recreate. A sturdy branch and some jute twine is all you will need to make this dried floral wall hanging. How lovely would this be to use in your kitchen as a herb drying rack that doubles as decor! I made a wood bead wall hanging that I think would be a great modification for this project if you don’t have access to a branch.
Church Window Pressed Display
I made this church window display for a friend a few years back as a way to preserve her daddy’s memorial flowers. This is one of the more complete DIYs requiring custom cut glass and backerboard but it is worth mentioning here in the line up. Don’t rule out custom pieces like this one when the idea blossoms. Search locally for glass cutting services to help bring your idea to life.
I love this simple spin on a wreath. These wreath rings provide a perfect base for a minimal project like this one. This tutorial will show you how to easily lift the strings of jute to make the cutest little pockets to hold your dried flowers. So cute and so unique!
This simple ombre wall just makes perfect sense. I love the gradual shift in color and it’s a sure fire way to make a statement in a room or even as a photo backdrop! Paired with twinkle lights This would be a great way to add a touch of romance to an event or photo booth!
This dried wildflower wreath would look amazing for fall! Even now, in the middle of the summer I am seeing beautifully colored botanicals for fall. Snip them now and hang them to dry for fall crafting!
One of the simplest and quickest ways to preserve and display florals is by pressing them between two pieces of glass like you see in these frames. The simple gold rim adds a touch of charm while letting the flowers themselves do the talking.
Dried Bloom Garland
The simplest of garlands can be made with jute string and the blooms from your dried botanicals. You could easily creat this look using fresh flowers and allow them to dry as they hang.
This is the next DIY on my list! I adore how sweet this flower monogram looks! A simple outline or cutout of your monogram would be the perfect way to plan out your flowers before applying them to your surface!
This petal garland looks as simple as popcorn garland at Christmas! Grab a needle and thread to begin your own sweet little garland to use for multiple occasions.
This is a lovely way to not only preserve your florals but have them on display for your guests. I imagine these coasters being perfect even as Christmas ornaments or gift tags!
