At Elsie Green, using art as a way to add character and layers of interest to a space is one of our favorite design practices. We're always on the lookout for the perfect piece to add to our ever growing collection of vintage art and keeping our eyes open for the latest trends. Currently, we can't stop thinking about the beauty and sentimentality of pressed botanicals and love how they look displayed as wall art.
During this period of quarantine, one of our shop girls, Kelsey, has been playing with pressing flowers at home. We love this craft as another way to get creative with your time and think it's lovely way to preserve your foraged flowers and encapsulate your time spent at home.
Want to try your hand at pressing flowers at home? Here is a simple how to:
line a book with parchment paper - try to pick a book on the heavier side
place cut flowers on the page, making sure not to let them overlap
close the book and press for about two weeks or until they are completely dry
For additional inspiration head to our Pinterest and if you're looking for the perfect piece to add to your collection, take a look at our carefully curated selection of vintage art in our online shop.
