Pressed Flower Pendant // DIY

Spring came so quickly and is already disappearing, but I managed to save a few pretty flowers with this DIY. I made a forget-me-not pressed flower pendant, and I plan on making another with baby's breath.
If spring is still hanging on a little longer where you live, you can follow this simple step-by-step to preserve a bit of spring 2014 for forever!

I got a three pack of the glass pendants from Michaels craft store, but I'm not sure where else they carry them.

Lay out the flowers that you chose on a napkin and then close them in it and a layer of wax paper to protect the pages of the book.
Next, place it between two pages of a book, or between a stack of books, and wait about a week.

After the flowers have finished pressing, place them between the two pieces of glass and insert it back into the pendant.

Now tie a string through the pendant's loop to create a necklace, and you are finished!
Enjoy your little spring souvenir. :)


I hope that you are all enjoying your day and are doing well. Happy belated Mother's Day, as well!

    1. Thank you, Janai! No, I didn't. My mom and I were actually shopping at Michaels and when we found the glass pendants, we thought it would be fun to press flowers in them. :)
