Pressed flower glass coasters using square glass, copper tape, and flowers from your own backyard in no time and not a lot of money.
I love the look of botanical prints and there's something about seeing them under glass that brings out their beauty. It also reminds me of playing with my brother's microscope as a kid. I really enjoyed playing with the slides and looking at the specimens under the glass.
Why not create botanical coasters with pressed flowers and glass? It's a fun flower craft and a wonderful way to preserve a special occasion.
Using some pressed flowers and a cutting of maidenhair fern I quickly made two coasters by sandwiching the plant material between the two squares and taping the edges with copper foil tape. You could also try gold foil for a gorgeous gold border.
How to Press Your Flowers
In a hurry or maybe it's winter and you don't have any of your own flowers to press? Buy some pressed flowers online.
I couldn't believe how pretty, easy, and affordable these pressed flower glass coasters turned out. The flowers are so pretty. However, if you are a fan of foliage this maidenhair fern looks pretty awesome too.
Imagine pressing some flowers from a special occasion like a wedding bouquet, or a lucky four-leaf clover. What a nice keepsake they would make.
