Homemade pressed flower keyrings





Recently we made keyrings with dandelions and other flowers. The "dandelion wishes" keyring worked well but the other flowers we used soon lost their colour as they'd been freshly picked when we put them in the keyring. We decided to press some flowers and make more permanent keyrings.





















If you have a post about a summer craft or any post with a summer theme, we'd love you to link up at our All Year Round Blog Carnival: Summer, which is open for new links until 31st August.

  9. I would endlessly press flowers in books as a little girl, what fun to turn them into key rings. I bet the children loved collecting them and designing their key rings.
