Bring the outdoors in with this stylish DIY display.
Tools + Materials
- floral scissors
- damp cloth
- heavy books
- scrap paper
- floating frames
Step 1: Find Foliage
Take a walk around the block. Bring your floral scissors. Even urban jungles have surprisingly interesting greenery. You’re looking for statement pieces. Keep in mind that you can always use your creativity to cut the foliage down in interesting ways to fit the size of your frames. Once you've selected your greenery, dampen a cloth or paper towel and gently wipe dirt from the leaves.
Step 2: Press Plants
Use heavy books to press plants. Place scrap paper between plants and books to absorb any moisture.
Step 3: Wait
Leave plants to press for about one week before removing.
Step 4: Frame
Place foliage flat in floating frames. Hang and enjoy!
