Get the look of pressed flowers using tissue paper! Add them to a an old jar for a DIY faux pressed flower look.

Just the other day I saw tiny pressed flowers added to a tag. I loved this idea and thought it would make a great addition to any Spring gift. I was so inspired by the pressed flowers that I decided to try and create them myself. As I looked at the flowers, they made me think of tissue paper. Yes, that is where my mind went!

I grabbed some tissue paper and played around with it for a bit until I came up with three different "pressed flower" looks. I was about to throw away an empty jar of pesto when it dawned on me; "This jar would be perfect for my flowers!". I decided to add my flowers to my jar and use it as a Springy vase!

We have so many delightful colors of tissue paper launching with today's sale at Blitsy! With so many colors, you could create your very own faux pressed flower garden!

Here's what you'll need:

  • Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Glass Jar (recycle one you already have!)
  • Paint Brush
  • Black Sharpie
  • Orange Marker

Step 1: Cut a circle that is about an inch in diameter. Add scallops to the edge. Then cut a circle that is a 1/2 inch in diameter and another circle that is 1/4 inch in diameter.

Step 2: Cut 2 purple circles that are 3/4 inch, 3 light purple circles that 1/2 inch, and 1 yellow circle that is 1/4 inch.

Step 3: Cut 5 yellow teardrop shapes that are 3/4 inch and 1 orange circle that is 1/4 inch.

Step 4: Construct your flowers by adding Mod Podge to the back of your petals and gluing them to the side of your jar. Add a black center and small dots to the center of your pink flower. Add a small black dot and small black lines to the center of your purple flower, and add orange dash marks to the center of your yellow flower. Cover your entire jar (from top to bottom) with Mod Podge.

Step 6: Let your Mod Podge Dry.

Step 7: When you are finished, your flowers will look like they are real pressed flowers! FYI...I also made some flowers out of my tissue paper. See how to make yours here.

Let's get crafty!
