This is a fun project to make a pretty dried flower placemat. It could make an ideal Mother's Day present. Older children will manage this easily on their own but younger children will need help from an adult with the lamination process. It takes a week or so to dry the flowers so you'll also need to plan in advance and be patient.
: 20 minutes plus 1 week drying time
: Under 5's, 5-10's, Over 10's, Any Age

Lay out the flowers onto absorbent paper

Your dried flower placemat is now ready to use. Please upload a picture your dried flower creation via the comments section - we'd love to see it!
