DIY Pressed Flower Art

Spring is the perfect time for making your own pressed floral art at home and can I just say… it is pretty stinking easy.

You don’t need anything fancy!

Okay so maybe except for one thing. Your frame. You can go as fancy or simple on it. I got this one off of Amazon (shocking I know!)

Go out in your back yard (or somewhere nature-y) and snip some pretty blooms! In this tutorial I've used a press called the Microfleur (where ever did you get this you ask? I’ll give you three guesses but you’ll likely only need one) (Amazon).

The Microfleur dries/presses flowers in a matter of minutes in a microwave compared to the traditional method of pressing flowers between heavy, parchment lined, books. Check out the video tutorial below to see how easy it is!

Ps. I like both ways but find the traditional method preferable only because I can’t seem to get the drying times right on the fleur. But I probably just need to mess with it more/be more patient (not my strong suit). Enjoy!


  1. Get a few large heavy books.

  2. Place parchment paper on top of book so the flowers don’t stick.

  3. Place blooms or leaves face down.

  4. Place parchment paper over the blooms/greenery.

  5. Put another heavy book on top with possibly an addition weight (I sometimes use bricks).

  6. Wait a couple weeks (yes this is the slower process).

  7. Unveil gorgeous pressed blooms!
