Upcycled Craft: Fall Floral Decoration Using A Metal Can

 Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. Personally, I am tired of the heat we've been experiencing and I'm eagerly anticipating the arrival of fall weather here in Colorado. How is the weather where you are? Thank you all for joining me again to create some crafts today. Our project is a fall flower arrangement made from a metal can. I cleaned out a snack can and transformed it into a beautiful display of fall florals using materials I had at home. However, if you don't have these materials, you can find them at most craft stores. I will provide a list of materials below as always, so let's get started!

Easy Double-sided Glass Panel Pressed Flower Design


Happy August everyone! Is it just me, or does it feel like this year is flying by? My girls will start school in a few weeks. Summer break has been nice. We'll enjoy these next few weeks doing a few more summer activities.

 Today I am sharing a quick DIY project that takes around 10 minutes to put together. We're going to create a pressed flower design using one frame decor with panels. The frame decor with panels I purchased was at my local Target for $3. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them, but I had a few ideas.

Materials


Papercraft faux flower embellishments or you can use real dried flowers
One frame decor with two plastic or glass panels
Paintbrush
Acrylic paint
Mod podge-I'm using the Super gloss finish

Applying paint to the frame

Paintbrush, frame décor, and paint on table

Begin by removing the panels from your frame. Once you have removed the glass/plastic panels, set them aside. Take your paintbrush and apply paint to your frame. I painted two coats of paint on my frame.

Next, take your flower embellishments and add them to one of your panels. Once you have placed your embellishments, use your paintbrush to begin to apply a layer of Mod Podge to each of them. I decided to add some paper flowers and leaves as well. Allow your Mod Podge to completely dry before adding your second panel on top.

Your framed pressed flower design is complete. Wasn't that simple to create? When placed in a window the Mod Podge gives the panels a nice shine. I love how simple this was to put this together. I hope you enjoyed this craft just as much as I did.

  2. Where did you get the frame with double glass/ plastic? Also where did you get the paper flowers? I was out shopping today and couldn't find either. I've got to tell you I fell in love with this Steph.

    1. Hi Paula, I purchased my double glass panel frame at Target. It was $3 in the Dollar section. I'm not sure if they have them anymore, but I will share a link here from Amazon that I was able to find.

      Also, there is another way to create this. You can easily grab two frames for Dollar Tree, and take the plastic or glass inserts out.

      Do the same steps as shown in the video, but the only thing that would change is the frame. For the frame, you could easily use wooden craft sticks and create a framed border around the two glass inserts. I will provide the link here below to a wooden frame with the panels.

  3. Wow, this is so cute! Do you think it would work with real flowers, dried and glued?

    1. Thank you. Yes, it would for sure work with real flowers. You could just add the real flowers between the panels without any glue as well.

  6. Such a cool craft, Stephanie!! The flowers look so pretty pressed in between the panes!! This could easily be done for all of the seasons using other natural elements such as leaves or pine tree branches. Thanks so much for sharing at Home Imagined today!
