These DIY pressed flower night lights are a fun spring or summer craft! They look beautiful during the day time and stunning at night! You just need a few supplies to make them and are the perfect gift or decoration for your home.
We had these boring clear night lights around our home and I thought they would look so pretty decorated with pressed flowers! They turned out even more beautiful than I could imagine and I instantly ordered more night lights and am making a bunch for gifts! Christmas is only a few short months away and I think these would make the perfect handmade holiday gift!
Ready to give it a try!? Here’s what you’ll need..
Supplies for the Night Light:
- Night lights Just an FYI, Mod Podge is non-flammable and I noticed that these particular night lights don’t get warm or hot. Please exercise caution when altering anything that plugs into an electrical outlet.
- Mod Podge- I used the matte version because the covers of my night lights have a frosted finish. You can try the glossy version if your night lights have a glossier finish. The last link that I shared has both types of Mod Podge and a handy brush that I highly recommend.
- 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.

Here’s How I Made these DIY Night Lights:
Step 1: Make a design with pressed flowers
First, play around with the flowers on the night light, without Mod Podge. You can move the flowers around until you find a design you like without committing with glue. We came up with a bunch of different designs, but this is my favorite!
Step 2: Add Mod Podge
Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to your night light. Just an FYI, Mod Podge is non-flammable and I noticed that these particular night lights don’t get warm or hot. Please exercise caution when altering anything that plugs into an electrical outlet.
Step 3: Place pressed flowers on night light
Arrange your flowers on the Mod Podge. I like using tweezers to transfer pressed flowers from the table to the night light.
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!
They look so pretty during the day and night! Which one is your favorite?
I hope you enjoy this nature craft as much as I do!
