DIY Pressed Flower Vase + How To Press Flowers With an Iron!
Updated: Apr 4, 2021
Hey guys, it's Megan!
I recently posted a video showing you a few projects you can try when you're bored this summer. If you missed it, you can check it out here!
One of the projects in the video was this vase made from an old Snapple Bottle:

For this project you'll need:
Recycled glass container (I used a Snapple Bottle) or mason jar
I showed how to press flowers with an iron in one of my older “things to do when you’re bored” videos. In case you missed it, you put the flowers between 2 pieces of parchment or computer paper, and iron them on the lowest setting for 5-10 minutes.
When the flowers are ready, rinse out your container.
If there’s a label, peel that off.
If you have trouble getting the sticky part off of the jar, try using a little nail polish remover to help.
Once the jar is clean, use some gloss Mod Podge to glue on the flowers. If you don’t have Mod Podge, just use some Elmer’s glue. Be super gentle with this, because you don’t want to rip them.
Let the glue dry, and you're done!
I think I’m going to use this as a vase to put fake flowers in in my room. I know the yellow doesn’t really match, but I’ve been thinking of incorporating a little yellow to brighten it up in there.
You can use this technique on any type of container. I might make another one with a mason jar/larger jar to hold makeup brushes!
