I believe that Queen Anne’s Lace is just too pretty to ignore. This beautiful flower had to be preserved and used in this nature crafty family.
I dyed the flowers in many different colors, since QAL dyes so well. Then I tried pressing the entire flower. This was a little difficult because many of the florets were crushed, no matter how hard I tried to press them all down perfectly.
So then I tried pressing each floret individually. This was a bit more time consuming, but worth it.
After a few days in the flower press, they were ready to use. They pressed perfectly!
Now, what to do with these pressed lovelies; I made a paperweight. I used a 1 part glue to 2 part water solution, then decoupaged the florets onto a rock.
