5 flowers perfect for pressing this fall
As summer turns to fall, there is more time to spend indoors working on crafts. Pressing flowers is a great way to work with your hands and create wall art or cards featuring elements of nature, allowing you to enjoy some of the great outdoors while you’re indoors. Of course, spring and summer instantly conjure images of freshly cut flowers, but there are still plenty of flowers to work with during the fall season.
We’ve compiled a list of five flowers that work well in pressing flowers. From jasmines to dahlias and tulips, these flowers will brighten up your art project and give you inspiration.
Once your flowers are picked, you’ll be ready to start pressing. If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry. At My Modern Met Academy, we turn to flower pressing artist Anna Zakirova to show how fresh flowers can become art in her classroom Beyond Bouquets: Transforming pressed flowers into one-of-a-kind art.
