When you press flowers and leaves, they become thinner and light can shine through them. In this Glowing Leaves project, you simply decoupage pressed flowers and leaves to a votive cup and cover with tissue paper.
Pressed Leaves or Flowers
Press flowers and leaves traditionally or with the Microwave Flower Press.
Tear off the straight edges from a sheet of tissue paper, then tear the paper into small pieces.
Brush the outside of the votive cup with decoupage solution.
Arrange pressed flowers and leaves all around the glass.
Brush on more glue and lay the pieces of paper on the glass, overlapping the edges. Keep adding paper and glue until the entire glass is covered.
