Pressed Flowers Decorating Ideas for Home

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

If you think your home needs a makeover, there is no better way than to personalise your décor by doing a little DIY with pressed flowers!

We can all agree that flowers are by far the most popular and visually stunning gift to give, but did you know they have a wide range of benefits? Not only could the presence of flowers beautify the place, it can also lift moods and freshen up the air. According to studies, those who spend time looking after flowers or making crafts with them can hone their organisational skills and generally be calmer and happier.

Utilising your fresh flowers by turning them into gorgeous pressed flower decorations is a great way to get your creative juices flowing. Here, our florists at Gift Flowers Singapore are more than happy to give a few tips on how to get started. 

Step-by-step tutorial on how prepare for your flower DIY project

  1. First, you will need to prepare the flowers you wish to press. Fresh flowers, especially those that are in full bloom, are preferred. The more beautiful they look before pressing, the better they will look after. Experiment with different ways for pressing flowers, with book and paper, with an iron or even with a DIY flower press and find the way that works best for you. Ensure that you have dried them fully before you begin crafting with them. It may take two to three weeks to fully dry.
  2. Gather all the materials first before making your DIY flower crafts. Many require simple props you could easily find around the house, such as a string, a glass or plastic ball, a hot glue gun, pieces of wood, an empty jar, crepe paper and wire.
  3. The final step is really to have fun! Making home décor is a sweet and rewarding little activity to try out. You could follow the instructions to a tee or put your own spin into it – the sky is the limit.

Ideas on how to make pressed flower decorations 

  • Hanging floral arrangements: Hanging your dried flowers upside down on a horizontal wooden stick can be a simple but beautiful décor to have in the living room.
  • Festive flower balls: If you have some glass or plastic baubles laying around, why not stick a little flower arrangement on top to make an adorable party decoration? This is perfect for special occasions, especially if a festival is right around the corner.
  • Pressed flower coasters: Found a thick chunky branch outside and don’t quite want to throw it away? Slice it up and press your dried cut flowers onto it to make a pretty coaster.
  • Potpourri: Fill your home with the most heavenly scents using the right blend of pressed flowers. Pop them in a mason jar and there you have your very own potpourri.

Choosing the best flowers for making home décor

Generally speaking, any flower can be used for these DIY projects. However, some flowers stand out more than others in terms of their colours and style.

The flowers from our MINI HYDRANGEA BOUQUET (HK$105.00) have this unique mysterious shade of violet that will really give the décor a special shine. 

Champagne Roses in Blue Round Flower Box

For a softer appeal, opt for a puffy bloom from our CHAMPAGNE ROSES IN BLUE ROUND FLOWER BOX (HK$120.00).

Bright, vibrant daisies are just the thing that will put a giant smile on our faces. Make use of our mixed coloured flowers in this magnificent GERBERAS WITH VASE (HK$75.00) and bring a little cheeriness into your home.
