How to make earrings from pressed flowers

These earrings are made with pressed flowers. First you must prepare your pressed flowers, or purchase from your local craft store. View our tutorial on how to press flowers for more information. e.g. methods such as using a microwave for quick results, or pressing in a book, which can take from two to three weeks.

Step 1. Press your flowers
In our case we tried a number of flowers picked from our garden and used both pressing methods. Some worked wonderfully, while others turned brown or shriveled. Experimenting is key. As we are making earrings, be sure to pick pairs of flowers of equal sizes. If you can find many of the same size that is best, since with the microwave method, one sometimes may shrink more than another. You can then choose the closest pair once all the flowers are pressed.

Step 2. Laminate your flowers
Your chosen pressed flowers then need to be laminated. We used our local copy center where they laid out numerous flowers on one A4 sheet. This was very cheap to have done. If you have your own laminating machine then use that, as it will be just as good. We discovered the finer the flower, the better it laminated. Thicker flowers sometimes caused creases in the sheet.
