The Earth Laughs In Flowers | Flower Floated Photo Frame DIY

It’s spring and with spring come a lot of flowers and plants. I just love that and I thought I should definitely do a DIY with them. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of floated photo frames in interiors and I own a couple as well. Mine have some cards with quotes or prints on them, but nothing special. Until I had seen a floated photo frame with flowers in it. ? I thought it would be so great to try this myself with some of my favorite flowers and in this post you can read how I did that!

“The flower doesn’t dream of the bee. It blossoms and the bee comes.” – Mark Nepo

What you’ll need || Floated photo frames, a thick book, paper towel, plants and flowers of your choice.

How to || First you have to start by selecting the flowers and/or plants you want to use for this DIY. I knew I definitely wanted to use eucalyptus, because I just love the look of it. Besides that, I also went for gypsophila and some rose petals ?, since I also wanted some color. There are different ways to dry flowers. A pair and spare made a blog post about this, which is very helpful actually. Since I want to use them in a floated photo frame, I went with the pressed flower way.

To get pressed flowers, you need a thick book (like a telephone book) and paper towels. When you’ve selected all of the flowers, open your telephone book, grab a piece of paper towel and put the flower on there. You can also just put the flowers in between the pages but the pages or flower can transfer color, that’s why you use the paper towel. The flowers have to dry for a little in between the book. I let mine sit for about a week and then they were perfect, but you can also leave them longer if you like.

After a week, I got the telephone book again and looked though the pages to see where all of my flowers were. I took them carefully out of the book, because you don’t want to ruin them. The flowers looked great when I took them out of the paper towel. Now I had to chose in which of the frames I wanted to put which flower. I decided to put the rose petals on a small card before putting it in a frame and I love the end result of this. In the other two frames I just put the gypsophila and eucalyptus… And voilá, the DIY is done!

I absolutely love how everything turned out because all of the flowers I picked look really nice inside my room. Btw if you have a problem, where the flowers won’t stay into place, just grab a piece of scotch tape, fold this, put it on the back of the flower and stick it to the back of the frame. That’s what I did with my eucalyptus because it definitely needed it. ? What do you think of this DIY? Are you going to make it yourself?

Love,

Neeltje
