These DIY pressed flower lampshades are so beautiful! Turn any dull lampshade in your home into a beautiful piece of art.
I’m adding to my long list of pressed flower crafts with this fun DIY summer activity! This is such an easy craft that a child could make one, but I know that you will want to make a couple as well! They look beautiful in any room, but we currently have our lamp in our kitchen. This little lamp is the perfect size for our counter and it makes this space look so beautiful!
Ready to give it a try!? Here’s what you’ll need..
Supplies for the Lampshade:
- Lamp- I used this lamp and like the size and worked well of the craft. Just be aware that this has a USB plug. I think this lamp looks like a nice option as well!
- Mod Podge- I used the matte version for the lampshade.
- Pressed flowers– You can always press your own flowers if you have them available in your garden! If you currently don’t have flowers to press, then I suggest purchasing already pressed flowers from Etsy or Amazon. Here is a nice wildflower mix. I love supporting these beautiful pressed flower businesses from Etsy, but these flowers took over a week to arrive at my house. If you need pressed flowers quickly, then I suggest going with Amazon. I’ve used many pressed flowers from Amazon for my crafts and am happy to recommend them as well. I love this set from Amazon. There are a ton of options available! Just type “pressed flowers” in the Etsy or Amazon search bars and a bunch of options will show up. I would suggest staying away from dyed pressed flowers because you don’t want them to bleed on the lampshade.

Here’s How I Made this Pressed Flower Lampshade:
Step 1: Think of a pressed flower design.
You have a blank slate on this lampshade, so play around with different flower designs before you add Mod Podge.
Step 2: Add Mod Podge.
Next, add a layer of Mod Podge on the lampshade.
Step 3: Place pressed flowers on the lampshade.
Arrange your pressed flowers on the layer of Mod Podge. I like using a tweezer to transfer the flowers from the table to the lampshade.
Step 4: More Mod Podge and let it dry.
Add a thin layer of Mod Podge over the pressed flowers and let it dry. Thicker flowers may require extra Mod Podge. The drying process might take a few hours!
It looks so beautiful when dried! It was fun to see how the lamp looked as dusk progressed.
Pin it and save it for later!
I hope you enjoy this nature craft as much as I do!
