Botanical Prints!

Now that spring is in the air, plants will be blooming again. A new trend that has appeared recently is the style of framing beautiful botanical plants. It gives an old world affect with natural resources. They really make a space look fresh and vibrant and is so easy to do yourself!

1. Find leaves or flowers that you would like to frame
2. place your found leaves in a heavy book where the pressure will push down on the leaves, if you want you can add more books on top to place more weight on the pants. Leave the plants in the books for three weeks to allow them to dehydrate and dry out.
3. Once the leaves appear dried place them on heavy duty paper, a type of artist paper and cover with Mod Podge which will give a transparent coat and help the plants stick down.
4. Frame your prints and hang them wherever you please.
