DIY Floral-Pressed Ornaments


  • Non toxic air-dry clay (we found ours on Amazon!)
  • rolling pin (or a can on its side!)
  • straw
  • assorted flowers and leaves
  • bakers twine or string
  • cookie cutter (or use a jar lid like we did!)
  • Mod Podge (optional)


  • Roll out a small golf ball sized chunk of clay with a rolling pin to about ¼" thick.
  • Use cookie cutter or jar lid to cut out a round disk, or design of choice. 
  • Press flowers and leaves into clay in any design.
  • Use straw to poke a hole out of the top of your disk. 
  • Tie a string inside of the hole so that your ornament can hang.
  • Let dry for about 24 hours fully.
  • If you want to give your ornament a glossy finish, you can coat the top of the ornament with Mod Podge to keep the florals long lasting in place and a nice shine!
  • Hang and enjoy!
