How to preserve flowers
Enjoy summer flowers all year long by preserving them. Use a large book to place your favourite fresh flowers, or create your very own portable flower press. Allow at least a week for the flowers to completely dry.
Summertime is filled with milestones and anniversaries. Say that you care with a personalized card featuring summer’s sweetest flowers. Use construction paper, absorbent paper, glue, and tweezers to put together this thoughtful craft.
You will be reminded of your favourite summer days every time you pick up your cell phone with this DIY pressed flower iPhone case. Pick and choose flowers with the colour and shape that best reflect your personality, or create a case to give as a gift to someone special in your life.
Monogram artwork is a simple but stylish way to add décor to any living space. Use pressed flowers to write the first letter of your first or last name. Place on a glass frame to display. Once dry, hang your masterpiece in any room of your Elora apartment.
Canvas wall art
You do not have to spend a lot of money to enjoy new wall art. Make your own canvas wall art using summer flowers. This project requires everyday arts and crafts materials, such as Mod Podge, a paintbrush, scissors and stretched canvas in the size of your choice.
