DIY Pressed Flowers in a Floating Glass Frame Craft

 I love seeing the pretty flowers on our neighborhood walks and hikes, don't you? Maybe that's why I adore making pressed flower crafts. This past month we've made pressed flower wooden trays and moon and star contact paper suncatchers. And today I'll share some lovely pressed flower glass frames that the boys and I made. These came out so pretty, I think they'd be perfect to keep, or give away to someone special.

Cute Clay DIY Air Plant Troll Pots

Hi friends! Many apologies. It's been a long time since I last posted. Let's just say that the pandemic and other personal projects have really worn me out and I've found it difficult to find the time and energy to craft. 

One thing that I have done to get me through these difficult times is watching houseplant and succulent videos. I have no idea why, but seeing people talk about plants really soothes me.  So today I'm popping in to share these adorable Clay Air Plant Troll Pots that I recently made. They are adorable and hopefully, they'll brighten your day too!
