The inspiration for wooden board with dried flowers has been around for some time, but I never had a good board at hand. Until now, when among the wooden discs we also got two plywood rectangles. A board with dried flowers is a minimalist and at the same time effective natural decoration. Once you mentally overcome the drilling barrier, it is very simple to make.
We still had some dried flowers from a previous project (a felt vase with dried flowers). Additionally, we collected some grass and wild flowers and dried them upside down.

You will need
- Dried flowers and grasses
- Drill. The size of the drill depends on the thickness of the flower stems. Ours ranged from 2 to 4 mm. I managed with a 3 mm drill, as described below.
- Universal glue
How to make a board with dried flowers
The first step is to prepare the board, or rather the holes in the board. To minimize drill changes, I drilled everything with a 3mm drill. If the stems were larger, I cut the ends with scissors. If they were smaller, I “sealed” them with glue.
I put a drop of glue in each hole and then the children put flowers.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
