Supplies: muslin fabric, scissors, masking tape, hammer, board (or other surface suitable for hammering) & flowers/leaves. You’ll want to gather a variety of flower petals and leaves. Carrot tops work really well (as photographed at the top), petunias, geraniums, etc. Pick some colorful stems and experiment. Some flowers transfer better than others.
You can use the fabric for so many applications, but keep in mind if you launder the fabric, the colors will fade.
This is a great project to try with kids- especially if your kids like to gather wildflower bouquets when you are out on a walk or hike. You can also flower pound on paper to make cards or frame a print.
What a lovely, imaginative project! Wouldn’t this be a meaningful technique to use with a wedding bouquet or flowers from a birth or an anniversary?
