Dream catcher

I wanted to do something else for my sweetie, and wanted to use those plant presses I had made before. So I attached them to a home made dream catcher. I added shells, sea glass, and washers that Luke’s sister had in her beading trays.
I think it turned out pretty good!

Plant press with a twist

My buddy Luke’s sister, who we are staying with in L.A. had this great idea for plant presses with fimo. They are beautiful, and are a fun way to infuse nature into your home. It’s simple: collect some plants (I did sequoia, California live oak, and lavender) press them into some fimo, and bake. I wrote their common name on their back, and they make beads, magnets, and wall hangings. Great gifts!

heat in a pot at low heat and mix until its at play dough consistency. Let cool, add food coloring, and model away!
