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)


  1. Roll out a small golf ball sized chunk of clay with a rolling pin to about ΒΌ" thick.

  2. Use cookie cutter or jar lid to cut out a round disk, or design of choice. 

  3. Press flowers and leaves into clay in any design.

  4. Use straw to poke a hole out of the top of your disk. 

  5. Tie a string inside of the hole so that your ornament can hang.

  6. Let dry for about 24 hours fully.

  7. 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!

  8. Hang and enjoy!
