DIY: Botanical Prints


I found this great DIY on Design Happens, and it fit so well into this month's theme and Earth Day that I had to share.

Here's What You Need

  • Plant cuttings from your yard or a nearby park (remember to only take one from each plant)
  • Clear acrylic finish
  • Plexiglas frames to match number of cutting you want to frame
  • Matting to match number of frames
  • Watercolor paper
  • Hot-glue gun

  • Gather cuttings that you like from your yard or a local park. Let the cuttings dry to ensure that they'll maintain their colors.
  • Spray the cuttings with a clear acrylic finish, which will protect the color.
  • Purchase Plexiglas frames and mat board for the back.
  • Hot glue the clippings onto heavyweight watercolor paper.
  • You can also write each clipping's botanical name onto the watercolor paper.
  • Assemble into the frames.
